Wired! Approaches to Digital Scholarship: Victoria Szabo + Kristin Lanzoni

Through a collaborative, laboratory approach, members of Duke University’s Wired! apply visualization technologies to the study of material culture, art, architectural, and urban history. In the process, they ask new questions, expand upon emerging lines of inquiry, and transform scholarship. Join Wired! members and Duke professors Victoria Szabo and Kristin Lanzoni to discuss recent projects and digital scholarship’s impact on teaching, research, and the broader public.

How can digital tools and applications broach issues of social justice, expand our transparency, and support sustainability? On the flip side, what has become of the digital divide, or the inequity of distribution of digital resources? What’s the dark side of the digital? Has it affected and challenged business, books, and music for better or worse? Throughout the 2014- 2015 academic year, Temple University Libraries’ curated public programming series will explore these ideas through an interrogation of digital culture including discussions, lectures, and programs featuring experts and thinkers across an expanse of digital topics. We will also feature conversations and presentations by artists, scholars, programmers, and developers who create innovative tools and projects through various modes and methods embedded in digital scholarship.
