What Is Digital Scholarship and Why Does it Matter?


This workshop introduces the ethos and motivations that drive digital scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. Together, we will examine several existing digital humanities and digital scholarship projects in order to understand their goals, their construction, and the terms on which they’re evaluated. We will also examine resources for getting started in digital scholarship, both at SFU and in the larger academic community.

Note: Please bring your fully charged laptop to this workshop.
