In the summer of 2015, from July 26 to August 2, a consortium of 23 liberal arts institutions will host ILiADS, the Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship, at Hamilton College in Clinton New York. Join us to explore digital humanities, pedagogy and scholarship from a liberal arts perspective!
Ways to Participate
The combined ILiADS summer event will span seven days, with opportunities to learn about and establish new forms of digital scholarship and teaching on your campus. Individuals can choose to attend the extended project-based institute for collaborative teams and/or the focused weekend conference.
During this week of digital immersion, teams composed of some mix of researchers, librarians, technologists, and students are invited to build onto established projects and/or launch new ones. Whether you’re learning how to clear significant hurdles or you’re just getting off of the ground, the Institute’s series of development workshops and consultation opportunities will enable teams to advance their goals. Over the course of the week, ideas will grow through collaborative, iterative processes. Projects of all types, and at any juncture, are welcomed. Those who might be interested in participating should complete our short interest form before December 15, 2014, after which an ILiADS Proposal and Planning Consultant will be in touch to discuss the project ideas, inquire about the proposal process, or to seek guidance on how to build a strong team.
The ILiADS Conference, held the weekend after the workshop, will provide opportunities to meet up with birds of a feather, to workshop work plans, and to have substantive discussions of topics ranging from digital pedagogy to project development to tenure and promotion. These opportunities will be punctuated with talks and panels that will include luminaries in the field. ILiADS Conference Weekend is open to anyone working in liberal arts settings, regardless of one’s participation in the preceding workshops. If you are interested in attending the conference, you are encouraged to indicate as much on our interest form so that we can send you a reminder before registration opens on March 2, 2015.
Why choose? Attend both! Although the Institute and the Conference can be productive as standalone events, the Conference is imagined as an opportunity for those who have been working on projects during the Institute to bring that development context immediately to bear on these larger framing conversations about digital humanities, pedagogy, and scholarship. You can indicate your interest in attending both by navigating to our interest form, starting down the Institute’s path and indicating your desire to stay for Conference Weekend as well.
