Subject :HANGIN' WITH THE COOL CATS: Enhancing Archives Access Through the Digital Humanities

nterested in animating your archival collections? Come hang out with the “cool cats” to explore ways in which archival collections can be used in digital humanities research. The purpose of this session is to explore the burgeoning area of digital humanities and its connections to archives. Digital humanities (DH) is a field that combines traditional humanities research and production of knowledge with technology. Both digitized and/or born-digital information are analyzed using humanities research methods (as well as new digital analytics), which are then combined with technology to create new data or new representations of data. Panelists will discuss a variety of tools, resources, and collaborations to spark ideas and conversation about digital humanities research and its integration with archival collections. Specifically, panelists will discuss archivist and faculty collaborations to integrate digital humanities projects into courses; the use of aerial imagery and topographic maps for geolocation of archival materials; a project to build a local history encyclopedia as a digital history project and participation in a new campus digital humanities lab; and how to develop an online system that extends an existing digital collections website into something more student-friendly. You do not need to have any previous experience with digital humanities’ concepts, theories, or tools—just an interest in exploration and conversation. You will leave this session knowing more about digital humanities and with examples of its application in archives.
