In May and August, the Digital Initiatives & Scholarly Communication team hosted the inaugural DH@Wake Summer Institute, a weeklong digital humanities workshop for Wake Forest University faculty. Faculty from departments ranging from foreign languages to anthropology to history explored digital humanities tools and methods for research with librarians who support digitally inflected scholarship. Daily topics included digital mapping tools, textual analysis and platforms for building digital exhibits. Guest facilitators from Duke University and George Mason University offered additional instruction. Participants also heard about library resources in a “Digital Did You Know?” panel featuring ZSR librarians and Information Systems staff who support digital resources for teaching and research.
Faculty also toured the new One Button Studio, a recording studio located in ZSR that will be available for students beginning fall 2018. Participants also had one-on-one consultations with the Digital Scholarship team to begin planning for long-term digital scholarship projects. In response to the positive feedback from DH@Wake, ZSR will partner with the Teaching & Learning Collaborative to offer continued training through a faculty learning community in Data Analysis in R during the academic year.
