I invite expressions of interest to present at either of the following two themed events, running next academic year (2016-17) at NYU’s Center for the Humanities, showcasing work by members of the NYU DH community:
1 – Museum Collaborations (Digital Transmission, Creation, Curation, Conservation, and Knowledge Production)
This event will bring together all those at NYU who collaborate with museums around digital methods and/or media. At this event we will also consider ways to further share, support and develop work in this area.
2 — Distracted Reading: Acts of Attention in the Age of the Internet
The Distracted Reading project asks how we might harness modes of distracted attention for innovative pedagogical practices, and/or as inspiration for new scholarly research methods or creative practice. The aim is to bring together both those who are already experimenting with such methods and those who would like to know more, to share experience and expertise.
If you are a member of NYU, have a scholarly, professional or pedagogical project that fits with either of these themes, and would like to present, please send me:
— an outline (max 250 words) in a word doc
— with your name and NYU affiliation at the top of the document
— and your name as the doc name.
My email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dates for the events are yet to be confirmed, but will be Tuesday evenings. In addition: I hope to schedule another open-themed showcase next Spring — further details will be forthcoming on this list.
Please do circulate this message within your NYU department/program/school. Both events will be open for public attendance, and we encourage those from outside NYU to come and be part of the conversation.
Thanks – I look forward to hearing from you,
