The Marquette community is invited to attend the university’s third annual digital scholarship symposium, Thursday, Sept. 28, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This year’s event, “Digital Scholarship and Community Engagement,” will begin with a workshop with Dr. Sheila Brennan, director of strategic initiatives, and Dr. Sharon Leon, director of public projects, at George Mason University’s Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. It will be followed by a lunchtime digital-scholarship project demonstrations. Lunch is provided. In two interactive afternoon sessions, participants will discuss the challenges and opportunities that they face and explore ways to build community around modes of digital scholarship. A reception hosted by the Office of Faculty Affairs and Marquette’s Raynor Memorial Libraries will close out the event.
The symposium is sponsored by Marquette’s Raynor Memorial Libraries, Department of History, Office of the Provost, Digital Scholarship Working Group, and University Library Board. The event is free, but registration required. To view the full program and to sign up, visit the symposium website.
