Description

DH at OSU: Digital Humanities Symposium

Friday, January 26, 2018

8:30am-5:00pm

Peggy V. Helmerich Browsing Room, Edmon Low Library, Oklahoma State University

Featured Keynote Speaker: Dr. Alison Langmead

Clinical Associate Professor and Director, Visual Media Workshop and Associate Professor, School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

"Collaborative Projects and Collaborative Spaces: Environments for the Digital Humanities"

Since its founding in 2011, the Visual Media Workshop (VMW) in the Department of History of Art and Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh has been transformed from “the old departmental slide library” into a busy digital humanities lab home to numerous collaborative projects, all of which focus on the history of visual and material culture. In this environment, faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates alike work together on research projects that span numerous cultures and centuries. In this talk, Dr. Langmead will present the research goals, collaborative structure(s), and current state of three of the projects connected to the Visual Media Workshop: Itinera, Decomposing Bodies, and Sustaining MedArt. She will discuss both the theoretical, academic promises of this type of work as well as an idea of what it feels like on a day-to-day basis to interact with these projects in the collaborative space of the VMW.
