Developing Institutional Capacity for Digital Humanities: Approaches for IT Professionals
Time 10/17/17 09:00AM-09:50AM
Room Seacliff B
The development of well-known institutional digital humanities programs-- such as those at the University of Virginia, University of Victoria, University of Maryland, and others -- has been significantly influenced by unique combinations of dynamic individuals and receptive institutional circumstances. Faculty and administrators in leadership positions at a growing number of universities are interested in developing some form of institutional support for digital humanities research and/or pedagogical practices, but are starting with a fragmented local landscape. Where previous work has focused on particular facets of successful digital humanities programs, addressed digital humanities within a particular organizational context, or provided case studies from a single institution, to date there has not been a holistic framework that can serve as a guide for improving institutional support.
