As part of the MW2015 conference in Chicago, a colloquium is being organized as part of the MWX strand that will provide an opportunity for a group of graduate students to share and develop their research in a critical but supportive environment. A panel of digital media and digital heritage scholars and professionals will be assembled who will provide valuable feedback on students’ current research and on future research directions. Themes discussed will help to further the study of digital technologies and their role in transforming the cultural heritage sector. Ultimately, the goal of this forum is to build relationships between MW’s professional community and academia to support the exciting work being done by graduate students across a range of digital humanities disciplines that holds the potential to shape our understanding of digital cultural heritage.
Initial expressions-of-interests are sought from current students enrolled in graduate programs by February 2, 2015.
