Digital Scholarship Meetups

Interested in digital humanities / digital scholarship? Drop by to share & learn about digital research, pedagogy & publishing @ UCR.

About this Event

Bi-weekly on Fridays during Spring 2021, the UCR Library hosts casual community conversations on digital research, teaching, and publishing. These informal meetups are designed to facilitate collaborative learning and connection across all disciplines and departments at UCR. All UCR community members are welcome to attend, regardless of your prior experience with digital humanities or digital scholarship!

Each meeting will focus on a specific topic within digital scholarship (see the list below). This quarter our topics follow the general lifecycle of digital projects from the initial planning stages to project evaluation. Community members are invited to share their projects and experiences with related tools and participate in informal conversation about the topic of the week.
