"Visual Resources in a Digital World: Pedagogical Practices in the Digital Humanities, Archives, and Liberal Arts"


Siân Evans, Artstor
Erin McCall, Artstor
“The Big Picture: Visualizing Data in Your Visual Resources Collections”

Andrea Schuler, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

“The Challenge of Digital Humanities: Decisions in the Rebuilding of Archnet and the Building of the Disaster Resilient Design Archive”

Chris Strasbaugh, Vanderbilt University
“Harnessing a Linked-Open World: Integrating Cross-Discipline Content to Support Digital Humanities”

According to the UCLA Center for Digital Humanities: “Digital Humanities interprets the cultural and social impact of new media and information technologies—the fundamental components of the new information age—as well as creates and applies these technologies to answer cultural, social, historical, and philological questions, both those traditionally conceived and those only enabled by new technologies.”

Digital Humanities in the cultural heritage environment includes such activities as curating online collections, mining large cultural data sets, data visualization/representational technologies, information retrieval, digital publishing, gaming, multimedia, peer-to-peer collaboration, and GIS and mapping. Art, architecture and archaeology Digital Humanities projects draw on one or many of these components, as well as incorporating content and methodologies from related humanities or, ever more frequently, from natural science and social science disciplines. In this new collaborative, interdisciplinary digital environment, visual resources specialists and librarians work side-by-side with faculty and students to develop and support Digital Humanities projects for teaching and research.

This session seeks to highlight the issues surrounding the support, development, dissemination, and preservation of Digital Humanities projects in the arts and humanities. Papers will address the issues surrounding the transformational changes brought about by introducing the concepts surrounding Digital Humanities into the arts and humanities disciplines. Papers will engage with issues in digital pedagogy, digital archives, and digital humanities; visualizing data in visual resources collections; decisions surrounding the rebuilding of Archnet and building a disaster resilient archive; and integrating cross-discipline content to support digital humanities via linked data.

Endorsed by the Education Committee.
