Agenda for UF Digital Humanities Working Group Meeting Today

The agenda for today’s meeting of the UF Digital Humanities Working Group (meeting in Pugh 210 from 12-1:30pm) is copied below and available as a PDF.
The meeting today will include introductions from all attendees and informal discussions on a general reading and on collaboration. The meeting should have an exciting mix of academic and library faculty attendees for discussion and brainstorming.
The UF Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG) is a group of academic and library faculty, staff, and graduate students who meet monthly to discuss current projects and topics at the intersection of digital technologies and core research needs and questions in the humanities disciplines. The Fall 2012 working groups will focus on “Archives, Curation, and Enhanced Publication.” We will discuss curation as a scholarly activity, and how scholars can collaborate with librarians and archivists to think critically and productively about making archival materials digitally usable by scholarly communities and wider publics. The full list of fall meetings is available on the Calendar of the Center for the Humanities & the Public Sphere.
