Description

Digital scholarly practice has been gathering steam for almost a decade at Boston University, but support for it has only been formalized in the last year and a half — and infrastructure building is ongoing. At University of Maryland, both the support and the scholarly practice are well institutionalized. However different our two institutional contexts are, we and others who support digital scholarship have been tentatively reaching out to each other for conversation. In particular, for many of us this work is informed by the current U.S. political climate, and by digital humanities' and digital libraries' response to it. We will give a brief overview of ways in which our intersecting fields have engaged with political aspects of knowledge production, then open the floor for conversation about workshop participants' current projects, and begin to collaborate on an online list of useful resources for a socio-politically active framing of our work.
