In spring of 2017, five Digital Scholarship Graduate Assistants explored how digital technologies provide scholars with new avenues of research. In an effort to put into practice some of what they learned, the group collaborated on a data visualization project using data from our very own Carpenter Library. The result is the Carpenter Carrel Project, an interactive map of the library that allows users to explore a snapshot of the number and range of books housed at each carrel. Come hear more about the project and the technologies learned through creating and publishing the digital project.
Stella Fritzell is pursuing her M.A. in Greek, Latin, & Classical Studies. Her research interests broadly include: cultural exchange and transmission of mythology in the ancient Mediterranean, shared traditions of Greek and Persian religious practice, and the intersections of cult doctrine and artistic performance. Stella is interested in digital scholarship as a new means for accessing and interacting with more traditional fields of scholarship. In her own research, Stella hopes to utilize DS tools to visualize cultural exchange between ancient Mediterranean societies.
This year, the Digital Scholarship program is sponsoring a weekly meetup for graduate students across Bryn Mawr to learn, share, and discuss all things digital scholarship. Some weeks will feature workshops, research presentations, professional development opportunities, or Q&A sessions with experts and other graduate students. Other weeks will be informal opportunities to meet graduate students outside of your department to talk, share, or troubleshoot. No technical expertise or experience with Digital Scholarship necessary! We welcome all graduate students curious about digital scholarship.
