Digital Bridges Symposium, August 2018

Welcome to all and warm thanks to our co-sponsors

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

Obermann Center for Advanced Studies

With generous support from our institutions and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Digital Bridges for Humanistic Inquiry: A Grinnell College/University of Iowa Partnership has been a fascinating, rewarding, and instructive experience in collaboration, digital pedagogy, and digital humanities practice. Our August 8-10 Digital Bridges Symposium will bring together faculty, staff, and students from both institutions and digital scholars from across the country as we reflect on what we have learned, how projects have taken shape, and what the future might hold as the grant draws to a close. We have helped build a strong network of digital humanities scholarship and practice at both of our institutions. Through this symposium, we hope to expand that network by connecting with an ever growing circle of faculty, staff, and students who have also been developing projects, infrastructure, and fascinating new courses.

The symposium will also be an opportunity to thank participants in our programs and the many people that have supported our work and partnered with us, especially colleagues at the University of Iowa’s Libraries, Digital Research and Publishing Studio, Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates, and Center for Teaching and Grinnell College’s DLAC and Center for Teaching and Learning.

The symposium is a public event, and all are welcome. See the Schedule for detailed information about session times and places. Also, please REGISTER so that we can provide ample coffee and snacks to fuel our conversations. Thank you.

We look forward to seeing you in August!
