institute opening remarks

 

The NINES/NEH Summer Institute Evaluating Digital Scholarship opened last night with introductions and a talk by 18thConnect Director Laura Mandell. The group will spend the week in discussions centered on five concepts central to describing and understanding scholarship in the digital age: Conceptualization, Evidence & Discovery, Intepretation, Remediation, and Communication. After all the conversations, roundtables, plenaries and demos, the group will spend the last day in collaborative work, drafting a document that identifies strategies and terminologies that will help Promotion and Tenure Committees better understand new forms of digital work.

Update: For those of you on twitter, you can follow our conversation at #9sinst11.
