In the humanities and the social sciences, technology is radically transforming scholarly practice. In light of these developments, scholars are posing new questions as technology continues to alter the horizons of research, knowledge dissemination, public engagement and teaching in unanticipated and sometimes disruptive ways. Co-presented by Yale University Library and the Whitney Humanities Center, this forum will examine how scholarship and its supporting institutions might face the upcoming opportunities and challenges of an open, digital and networked environment.
On Friday, 15 November, in the Lecture Hall of the Whitney Humanities Center at Yale University, a world leader in digital scholarship will explore the implications of computing and communications technology for the humanities and social sciences. In partnership with members of the university community, this event will continue a conversation on the new directions for digital scholarship and the transformative, dynamic and innovative role Yale might assume in this rapidly changing scholarly landscape. Yale University Librarian Susan Gibbons will introduce the forum, and a number of innovative, digital scholarship projects from across the university will be featured.
