Web Scholarship

January 6th, 2012

Recently, I’ve been reading a number of articles talking about key concerns in digital humanities scholarship, especially concerning the current and potential collaborative/interdisciplinary nature of this work. There were three really terrific pieces in the recent edition of the MLA’s annual publication, Profession, including one by Steven Anderson and Tara McPherson from USC, addressing the challenges that non-traditional engagements in digital scholarship present for those working in traditional academic environments. I wanted to share one blog that includes some podcasts of this type of discussion as it’s relevant for all of us, regardless of our specific research areas.

This link is from Dan Cohen, an Associate Professor in the Department of History and Art History at George Mason University and the Director of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. It includes a recent presentation at the Scholar’s Lab at the University of Virginia. I look forward to discussing this with you all in the future!
