Lansdowne Lecture | Presented by the Digital Humanities Committee

What’s missing from graduate training in the humanities? How can we fill the gap—and why must we fill it now? Anchored in her work with the Scholarly Communication Institute and at the University of Virginia’s Praxis Program, Bethany Nowviskie will focus on concrete, extra-curricular experiments that prepare students to meet the needs and opportunities of the digital age. A longtime digital humanities scholar-practitioner, Nowviskie leads the Scholars’ Lab and related programs at UVa Library and is President of the Association for Computers and the Humanities.
