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 third of these lectures will take place on November 9, 2013 and will be led by Tanya Clement. This workshop will explore research opportunities for scholars of poetry and digital archives.
Tanya Clement is an Assistant Professor in the School of Information at the University of Texas, Austin, specializing in digital humanities, digital scholarly editing, text mining and analysis, and digital scholarly infrastructure development.
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.
