Session Abstract

This past year has seen great activity to galvanize the use of advanced technologies for research and teaching in the humanities, including community building and shared IT services development for scholars (Project Bamboo), software and computational infrastructure to support innovative humanities scholarship ( Software Environment for the Advancement of Scholarly Research (SEASR), Zotero), forums for digital humanities (Humanities, Arts, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC), CenterNet, Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS), and the NEH summit and ACLS activities supporting shared research across digital humanities centers in the U.S. Major National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Humanities Challenge Grants and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation support for Project Bamboo, SEASR, Zotero, and the Fluid Project have stimulated collaboration, planning, and open source shared resource development. Trends emerging include access to online collections, ways that scholars can collaborate with other scholars through networked resources, new software tools for knowledge creation and presentation, computational resources that are distributed through grid computing, cloud computing and shared storage resources. The role of advanced networking and middleware will be critical in enabling these distributed collaborative efforts. This panel will advance the national conversation about the important role that the Internet2 community, network, applications, middleware and services can play in advancing sustainable digital humanities initiatives for research, scholarship and teaching.
