Each month, 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 will connect to International Workers Day and celebrate the conclusion of the academic year. Community members are invited to share their projects and experiences with related tools, and participate in informal conversation about the topic of the week.


You may also be interested in the Geospatial/GIS Meetup series , or other UCR Library events.


All participants are expected to follow and uphold UC Riverside's Principles of Community.


Coordinators: Krystal Boehlert and Rachel Starry


List of meetup topics for Spring 2023:

  • April 26, 2023: Equitable Labor in Digital Scholarship. Digital projects often involve tasks that can go unacknowledged and labor that is ultimately invisible to the end user. We will highlight some of the ongoing discussions regarding equitable labor in digital scholarship, as well as describe ways to identify, articulate, and credit your own labor, skills, and contributions to digital and public scholarship projects.
  • May 24, 2023: How to Break the Rules in Digital Scholarship. Making is inherent to digital scholarship, and there is plenty of overlap between scholarly and creative processes. We will use artist Corita Kent’s “Immaculate Heart College Art Department Rules” (corita.org/tenrules) as a starting point to think about what implicit “rules” govern the work of digital scholarship, so we can learn to break them in productive ways that push the boundaries of our research and knowledge-creation.
