Social Scholarship and Digital Humanities in the 21st Century
The higher education environment continues to experience a period of significant global change and disruption driven by multiple factors, the most important of which is the deepening transition to a digital knowledge economy. Established methods of working have evolved and continue to evolve, opening up new and hitherto unimagined spaces within disciplines, across disciplines, and beyond traditional boundaries. Within a rapidly shifting context, full of ambiguity and necessitating much flexibility, successful research is conducted increasingly via valued interdisciplinary collaborators and research partners across the university and beyond.
At his October 15 presentation, Daniel Michaels, Chief Technology Officer at the National Institute for Newman Studies, will discuss some of the emerging trends in scholarship and digital humanities, so as to cast an inspiring vision for how new paradigms of research can enable innovation and, even occasionally, surface unanticipated surprises.
