In May of 2013, we received a UC Faculty Development Council Grant to run a series of five workshops in order to help us determine the best ways to use The Elliston Digital Audio Archive for instruction and research. The second of these lectures will take place on October 5, 2013 and will be led by Kenneth Sherwood. This workshop will develop our understanding of how this digital audio archive can function in the literature classroom and the poetry workshop.
Kenneth Sherwood is an associate professor at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania and co-director of the Center for Digital Humanities and Culture, specializing in Modernist and Postmodern American Poetry, Oral Literature, Ethnopoetics, Digital Writing and Literature, Critical Theory, and Creative Writing.
The workshop model we are using draws some inspiration from recent successes in crowd-sourcing. Put another way, our workshops will engage scholars and poets alongside digital archivists from UC Libraries – faculty and students representing quite distinct areas of expertise – to innovative collaboratively while exploring and developing new skills.
Each full-day workshop will be held in a computer classroom in Langsam Library. For more information, or to inquire about the possibility of attending any of these workshops, please contact Jay Twomey.
