Broadening the Digital Humanities: The Vectors-IML Summer Institute on Multimodal Scholarship


University of Southern California's Institute for Multimedia Literacy.


July 13 - August 7, 2009



The Institute at the University of Southern California's Institute for Multimedia Literacy from mid-July to mid-August, 2009, served as an introduction to key issues in the multimodal digital humanities and as a hands-on practicum in the creation of digital scholarship. Scholars learned both by engaging with a variety of existing projects but also through the production of their own project; these projects enriched the participants's own understanding of the digital humanities and model the field for other scholars through their publication in the electronic journal Vectors, and elsewhere online. The Institute provided the opportunity to explore the benefits of interactive media for scholarly analysis and authorship, illustrating the possibilities of multimodal media for humanities investigation.
