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. Whether you just have an idea for a project and are looking for partners or your project is off and running and you want dedicated time to work through specific challenges with your team, ILiADS can help you shape a manageable work plan. ILiADS, at its root, is a project- and team-based approach to building a community of liberal arts practitioners and pedagogues; however, if you are just interested in exploring digital scholarship and pedagogy through the lens of an early idea for a course or project–or if you just want to tap into the conversation during our Conference Weekend–you should also be in touch. Our Proposal Consultants can connect you with other, similarly-inclined folks. So join us to explore digital humanities, pedagogy, and scholarship from a liberal arts perspective.About the Event
If you only have a small project team – or even if you only have an idea – ILiADS can help you find collaborators, develop a work plan, and leave you with attainable milestones for your digital project.
This is true, too, if your project has curricular or pedagogical designs; indeed, we encourage applicants keen to experiment with digital pedagogies!Example Projects
You and (maybe) a small group of motivated colleagues have been working on a project piecemeal and you’re ready to formalize its goals and stage its future.
If this looks like you, ILiADS can help you take those next steps, whether it means getting you over a technical hurdle, putting you in touch with similar projects, or guiding you toward a planning grant.Example Projects
Is your project ready for a power-up? You’ve got results, you’ve taken the project to conferences, and now you’re ready to take the next steps.
Do you want to turn that project into a set of teaching modules? Or think about partner institutions? Or identify significant grant resources to scale-up. ILiADS specialists will help you with any of these.

On the weekend following the institute week, the two main paths of participation will converge, joining those who have been constructing with those who will be conferring. ILiADS Conference Weekend will kick off late Friday afternoon with a reception and a discussion of institutional strategies for digital pedagogy and practice, led by John Unsworth. Over the course of the weekend, participants will enjoy breakout sessions and dining opportunities that collect faculty, administrators, technologists, and librarians to share ideas about digital scholarship and pedagogy. All of the weekend’s smaller gatherings will be punctuated by keynote addresses from Adeline Koh, Kathleen Fitzpatrick, and Mark Sample.
If you’d like simply to attend the conference weekend, exclusive of the Institute week, you’re more than welcome to do so: let us know on our interest form so that we can send you a reminder before registration opens on March 2, 2015.ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
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.MORE DETAILS
