Monopolies of Invention: Collaboration Across Class Lines in the Digital Humanities

Digital humanities communities on local, national, and international scales are rightly characterised as welcoming, collaborative, and interdisciplinary. Nonetheless, they operate within institutional structures that reify distinctions between service and research, staff and faculty.

Dr Nowviskie will discuss models and policies that have evolved at the University of Virginia over its twenty years of institutional experience in the digital humanities. She will identify successes to be duplicated and outline problems to be solved.

This talk will be of interest to academic and professional staff from the broad area of humanities as well as librarians and other specialist staff. The Forum is a combined key note session of the Faculty of Arts eResearch Forum and the Information Futures Forum, key note sponsored by the VeRSI.
