  • Description:

    Note: This two-day event takes place at a different location each day.

    Cyberinfrastructure is the network of enabling technologies, digital content, expertise, equipment, software, training, and other resources that facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration. How can humanities scholars and practitioners at the University of Michigan adapt and adopt cyberinfrastructure – both organizational and technological - for their research?  “Exploring Humanities Cyberinfrastructure” will showcase current research and scholarship and explore the opportunities for digitally-assisted humanities scholarship to flourish at Michigan. By bringing together a wide variety of existing and potential stakeholders in interdisciplinary research and learning in the humanities disciplines, the program will engage the Michigan community in a conversation about some of the key issues surrounding cyberinfrastructure (physical, human, and technological) for humanities research and scholarship.
