NINES Summer Workshops: Emerging Issues in Digital Scholarship


Institutes were hosted at the University of Virginia. A final meeting was held at the headquarters of the Modern Language Association in New York, NY.


First institute held May 30 - June 3, 2011 and second institute held June 19 - 22, 2012. Final meeting held May 20 - 21, 2013.



NINES hosted a series of 5-day workshops with emphasis on institutional concerns surrounding digital scholarship in the humanities, specifically in regard to peer-review and the tenure-and-promotion process. The workshops explored issues under rubrics: "markup and metadata," "interface," "documentation," "collaboration," and "sustainability." The workshops guided the development of projects and used the group to generate public working papers towards a rationale for peer-review and promotion. Both workshops were held at the University of Virginia, with its rich supporting environment in the digital humanities. In combining opportunities for technical, theoretical, and institutional training and discussions, NINES cultivated digital scholarly production and reception in the humanities.
