This fall, the Office of Digital Research and Scholarship (DRS) is expanding several initiatives to foster cross-disciplinary communities between faculty, students, and staff. We regularly provide new learning opportunities and spaces for discussion surrounding digital research methods, tools, and topics. This year, we will continue our work in Digital Humanities by launching three new methods-based working groups, making a campus-wide listserv, and holding regular walk-in office hours.
A working group on prosopography (historical data about people) is already meeting, and two additional working groups on digital cultural heritage and digital publishing are being formed. These working groups are designed to allow sharing and open discussions about research methods and humanities data across disciplines. If you have an idea for a working group, or would be interested in participating in the cultural heritage or publishing working groups, please contact Sarah Stanley.
DRS has also created a new communication channel for digital-curious humanists on campus. Sign up with your FSU email address for a new listserv dedicated to announcements and discussion about digital humanities at FSU.
Sarah Stanley, our digital humanities librarian, is also offering walk-in office hours throughout the fall semester for any questions related to digital humanities tools and methods. Office hours will be held in the R&D Commons on the lower level of Strozier between 2-5 on Mondays and 12-3 on Thursdays.
DRS and the libraries are excited to continue building a community of researchers who are empowered to do meaningful cross disciplinary research. We welcome any questions or suggestions as to how we can better connect with you and your colleagues.
