Creating and Sustaining Cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities
SESSION: Special Topic: Workforce Development
EVENT TYPE: Workforce Development Panel
TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM
ABSTRACT: A key challenge in building bridges between humanists, on the one hand, and information technologists, on the other, is translation across the different perspectives they bring to the table and the dearth of training opportunities available to them. The "Creating and Sustaining Cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities" panel will help address these issues by presenting examples of successful strategies for creating and sustaining cyberinfrastructures for the humanities. Leading members of the nascent field of digital humanities will present ideas and best practices in how to engage the humanities community in using high performance computing across a broad range of disciplinary and technological subjects. In addition to those issues raised above, the panel will also address some of the following questions: What does and doesn't work? What are some exemplar projects? How can we engage students? What funding opportunities and challenges exist?
