Faculty Town Hall: PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge
The Franklin Humanities Institute is pleased to announce a new PhD Laboratory in Digital Knowledge, to be co-directed by Cathy Davidson and David Bell, beginning in Fall 2012.* We are hosting a town hall meeting to introduce the Lab and to discuss ways in which faculty might participate in its pedagogical and research projects - all interested faculty in the humanities and social sciences are invited to attend.
The future of research and teaching in the Humanities (and across the spheres of the university) is in the midst of a major transformation, one prompted by multiple and ongoing innovations in the digital, informational, and computational fields. The goal of the Digital Knowledge Lab is to provide an arena in which PhD students in all the humanities and interpretive social sciences (regardless of their individual disciplines) can both receive training in, and contribute to the production of, new forms of digital scholarship, digital knowledge networks, pedagogies, and engagements with the public.
* Please note that this is a separate initiative from the Humanities Writ Large-supported Humanities Laboratories at the FHI. We will be requesting proposals for a new Humanities Lab this fall semester. For more information, please see our CFPs for seed grant proposals (deadline 4/27/12) and for full proposals (deadline 11/2/12).
