"Digital Scholarship can be defined as any element of knowledge or art that is created, produced, analyzed, distributed, published, and/or displayed in a digital medium, for the purpose of research or teaching."
— Kirsten Foot, Assistant Professor,
Department of Communication,
University of Washington
Digital scholarship has many dimensions and may be defined as:
- any element of knowledge or art that is created, produced, analyzed, distributed and/or displayed in a digital medium for the purpose of research or teaching;
- the creation of digital technology, tools and services to solve problems in scholarship; or
- the study and analysis of digital information, resources and culture.
The Collaboratory for Resarch in Computing for Humanities, with support from the Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments, has organized the second Digital Scholarship Colloquium to continue the campus dialogue among current and future digital scholars at the University of Kentucky.
The purpose of the Digital Scholarship Colloquium is to bring together faculty from across campus who are actively creating and using digital scholarship, and those who are interested in seeing how they might apply technology to their own work.
The Colloquium also serves to encourage interdisciplinary and inter-college collaboration.
