The Libraries’ is committed to supporting new and emerging forms of research and creative activity that is part of the wide world of Digital Humanities.
Your Digital Humanities (DH) librarian, Ashley Maynor, is here to support transformative scholarship. She is available to help scholars:
- learn to use media and DH tools and methodologies;
- effectively collaborate on non-traditional research projects;
- preserve and publish scholarly work, including creation of digital objects and metadata;
- assist with grants for digital scholarship projects.
See below for some information about In-Person Support and Virtual Support for digital scholars.
DH Community of Scholars
A group of faculty and librarians with Digital Humanities interests began regular meetings in Fall 2014. To join this group, please contact Ashley Maynor or subscribe to the Digital Humanities Listserv (DH-UTK) by going to OIT’s listserv page.
In 2015-16, this group expanded into a Faculty Research Seminar with five regular meetings each semester, sponsored by the UTK Humanities Center. And in 2016, this group became a Community of Scholars, as recognized by the Office of Research and Engagement and meets at the Libraries. Check out the Illuminate website for more information.
Faculty across campus are invited to connect with one another and share announcements through a moderated listserv. To join this group, please contact Ashley Maynor or subscribe to the Digital Humanities Listserv (DH-UTK) by going to OIT’s listserv page.
