ZSR’s Digital Initiatives and Scholarly Communication team is pleased to announce this year’s DH@Wake Summer Institute: Community and Collections, a 3-day webinar series on connecting communities through building digital collections. The webinar will take place July 13-15, 1:00 – 4:30 pm ET, and is free and open to the public. Registration is now open at https://myz.sr/DH2020.

Community and Collections will highlight digital humanities collaborations by research teams at Wake Forest University, the University of Washington, and the University of Delaware, as well as innovative digital humanities classroom collaborations that have bridged divides between the university and community partners. The final day of the webinar will feature workshops on collaborating with community partners, DH classroom projects, and storytelling with data.

This year’s keynote speaker, Sarah Ketchley, Department of Near Eastern Languages & Civilization, University of Washington, will speak about her work as PI of the Emma B. Andrews Diary Project and co-director of Newbook Digital Texts, and will lead a workshop on bringing digital humanities research into the classroom.

The full schedule and more information is available on the event site, https://sites.google.com/wfu.edu/dhwake2020.

This is the third year of the DH@Wake Summer Institute at Wake Forest, and the first year that it will be held online! This free event is open to all who are interested in the topic of Community and Collections, but registration is required for attendance. We look forward to seeing you July 13-15!
