Join us for a thoughtful, interactive discussion on preparing for work in digital and public humanities. Whether you are a new graduate student or seasoned researcher, learn how to prepare yourself and others for these overlapping and growing fields.
Michelle Dalmau and Sara Duke actively work in digital scholarship and public humanities. Here, they will discuss their work with Indiana University Bloomington’s Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities (IDAH) and provide insights on what it takes to be a digital public humanist.
Dalmau is associate librarian and head of Digital Collections Services at the Indiana University Libraries. She also serves as the co-director for IDAH, where she fosters the development of digital arts and humanities infrastructure projects and initiatives through outreach, collaborative research and creative pursuits, consultation, professional development and credit-bearing programs. Dalmau’s research areas range from the creation of scholarly editions to organizational trends and practices around digital scholarship.
Duke is a second-year master’s student graduating from Indiana University in May 2020. She is pursuing dual degrees in library science and information science with a specialization in digital humanities. Duke also serves as the senior digital methods specialist for IDAH. Her current research project uses digital text analysis to analyze different iterations of Alexander Hamilton and how those different iterations affect our understanding of his character.
This event is co-sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center.
This event is one of three discussions that will feature teams of scholars who are known for their work as digital public humanists and for advocating for and mentoring graduate students from within libraries and departments. Each team consists of a professional and a student. Each event will include a structured interview and a joint discussion between audience members and scholars. The other two discussions are on: March 20 at 10-11:30 a.m., and April 9 at 10-11:30 a.m.
