    Student Advocacy for the Digital Humanities

    Saturday, September 28th, 2013 | shoelsch

    Following along the lines of Sigrid’s proposed session but from a different perspective, what is the role of students in supporting digital humanities work across a decentralized academic? I’m hoping to organize a digital humanities student group at my home university with other members of my cohort, but wonder what the scope of such a student group should be. How can students leverage relationships with faculty members and librarians to establish a backbone for an otherwise isolated community? What kinds of events would provide the most value for such a disparate yet budding digital humanities community? Most importantly, how can we advocate not only the practice of digital humanities but also the use of digital pedagogy and tools in the classroom?
