March 2013

In the humanities and the social sciences, technology is radically transforming scholarly practice. In light of these developments, scholars are posing new questions as technology continues to alter the horizons of research, knowledge dissemination, public engagement and teaching in unanticipated and sometimes disruptive ways. This forum will examine how scholarship and its supporting institutions might face the upcoming opportunities and challenges of an open, digital and networked environment.

On Friday, 1 March, in the Lecture Hall of the Sterling Memorial Library at Yale University, three world leaders in digital scholarship will explore the implications of computing and communications technology for the humanities and social sciences. Together with members of the university community, they will inaugurate a conversation on the new directions for digital scholarship and the transformative, dynamic and innovative role Yale might assume in this rapidly changing scholarly landscape. Yale University Librarian Susan Gibbons will introduce the forum, and a number of innovative, digital scholarship projects from across the university will be featured.
