Monday March 25: Triangle Digital Humanities Institute on Digital Humanities Pedagogy
All Day Event | This one-day event aims to build community and skills around digital humanities pedagogy. It will include lightning presentations, roundtables, workshops, and discussion sessions by and for instructors, staff (including, but not limited to, librarians and technologists), and graduate students at universities in the Triangle area. Topics will range from assessing the value of dh pedagogy, presenting classroom case studies, scaling research to fit the classroom, and creating open environments for experimentation to developing collaborative teaching models, designing dh assignments, integrating dh into learning objectives, grading digital projects, and building capacity beyond the individual classroom.
Katherine Faull, Diane Jakacki, and Anne Kelly Knowles will offer feature presentations on their collectively vast pedagogical experiences in digital humanities and related fields. Local presenters will share examples from their own teaching, will foster practical discussions, and will offer resource sharing opportunities. The Institute will be a great opportunity for all those involved in digital humanities instruction to network across departments and institutions. The Institute is sponsored by the Digital Humanities Initiative at the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University and the Triangle Digital Humanities Network; co-sponsored by Computational Media Arts & Cultures, Digital Scholarship Services, Information Science + Studies, Learning Innovation, and the Wired! Lab for Digital Art History & Visual Culture at Duke University. Free and open to the public. Location: Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall (AFLH), Franklin Humanities Institute, Smith Warehouse, Bay 4, C105.
Tuesday March 26 Publishing In/With Hybrid Forms
Panel 1: 12:00 | Multimedia and Web Content in Monographs and Journals: New Options for Humanities Authors.
How can traditional academic publishing be intellectually or visually enhanced by digital accompaniments like digital visualizations, interactive websites, oral histories, primary sources, or other digital/multimedia components of research in the humanities and interpretive social sciences? The speakers will present a spectrum of concrete possibilities for prospective authors to consider, including examples of monographs and journal issues that integrate multimedia and digital humanities in surprising new ways.
Speakers: Kat Charron (NCSU), Jessica Ryan (Duke University Press), David Bell (Duke), and Liz Milewicz (Duke Libraries). Moderated by Sylvia Miller (FHI). Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 12:00–1:30 P.M., followed by lunch at 1:30. Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, Franklin Humanities Institute, Smith Warehouse, Bay 4, C105.

Panel: 2:00 | Futuristic Publishing Forms for Digital and Hybrid Scholarship.
Scholars, publishers, and developers who have created cutting-edge innovations in digital-first publishing share their exciting projects and discuss the successes and challenges of publishing in ways that are untethered to the traditional publishing infrastructures. Featured projects involve electronic literature, augmented/virtual reality, documentary sound files in a virtual radio, and a digitally "hand-stitched" zine.

Wednesday March 27 Engaged DH Pedagogies Outside the Classroom
10:30 | Engaged DH Pedagogies Outside the Classroom: Bass Connections Projects Panel.
How do humanities faculty do digital research projects? Digital humanities projects challenge us as scholars and teachers to integrate our disciplinary expertise with novel--and perhaps unfamiliar--technologies and skills. This panel features Duke humanities faculty who have conducted collaborative digital research through Bass Connections, and related, programs. We will focus on how these projects are conceived, developed , and completed through a discussion of past and ongoing projects across three disciplines.
This panel will feature Robin Kirk (Cultural Anthropology, Activating History), Charlotte Sussman (English, Representing Migration through Digital Humanities) and Andrew Janiak (Philosophy, Project Vox), and Jessica Hines (English, Visualizing Suffering). Moderated by Astrid Giugni (English, Data+). Location: Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall (AFLH), Franklin Humanities Institute, Smith Warehouse, Bay 4, C105.
Thursday March 28 Versatile Careers/Activist Pedagogies
12:00 | Becoming a Versatile Humanist: Lessons from Duke PhD Alumni.
The University supports a wide range of opportunities for graduate students to participate in disciplinary and interdisciplinary activities that extend beyond traditional coursework and training. This includes opportunities to participate in departmental and interdisciplinary Humanities Labs, Bass Connections projects, and similar collaborations as researchers, mentors, instructors, and project managers. In recent years PhD graduates of our programs and labs have gone on to successful careers in higher education, secondary education, libraries, museums, and research centers. This session showcases four recent alums who will reflect w on how such complementary experiences can contribute to diverse professional opportunities for PhD students after they graduate, whether as faculty members or in other roles.
Speakers: Elizabeth Baltes, Assistant Professor of Art History, Coastal Carolina University; Mitch Fraas, Curator, Special Collections, Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts, University of Pennsylvania Libraries; Sandra van Ginhoven, Head, Project for the Study of Collecting and Provenance, Getty Research Institute; Andrew Ruoss, Faculty, Hotchkiss School.
