About this guide
Bucknell University, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will host its first annual international digital scholarship conference. The theme of the conference is “Collaborating Digitally: Engaging Students in Faculty Research” with the goal of gathering a broad community of scholar-practitioners engaged in collaborative digital scholarship in research and teaching.
This conference will bring together a broad community of scholar-practitioners engaged in collaborative digital scholarship in research and teaching. Through papers, roundtables, and an interactive poster session, we will explore a range of collaborations: between institutions of higher education; across disciplines; between faculty, librarians, and technologists; and between faculty and students.
Bucknell is a private liberal arts university located alongside the historic Susquehanna River in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. At Bucknell “Digital Scholarship” is defined as any scholarly activity that makes extensive use of one or more of the new possibilities for teaching, learning and research opened up by the unique affordances of digital media. These include, but are not limited to, new forms of collaboration, new forms of publication, and new methods for visualizing and analyzing data.
