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. Co-sponsored by the Digital Humanities Initiative and the Publishing Humanities Initiative

1:30 | Lunch

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.

Speakers: Helen Burgess (NCSU), David Zielinski (Duke), Aaron Kutnick (Center for Documentary Studies), and John Herr (Duke Trinity Technology Services). Moderated by Amanda Starling Gould (FHI). Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 2:00-3:30 P.M. Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, Franklin Humanities Institute, Smith Warehouse, Bay 4, C105. Co-sponsored by the Digital Humanities Initiative and the Publishing Humanities Initiative.

3:30 | VR/AR Demo with David J. Zielinski. Join us in the PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge, the room adjacent to the Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, to test VR/AR technologies yourself!

The Duke Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI@FHI) promotes new ways to engage in and learn about the use of technology in humanities scholarship. Our goal is to connect scholars, teachers, librarians, technologists, and practitioners from around campus.

Our expanded idea of “digital humanities” includes digital transformations of scholarly practice and dissemination within the humanities, opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and innovative teaching made possible by digital tools and methods, creative and experimental uses of technology for scholarly communications, and critical study of computational media and digital culture globally.
