Conferences and Symposia
Digital Humanities Infrastructure Symposium
February 23-24, 2017
The digital humanities represent the cutting edge of humanities research and instruction, but they also represent a fundamental shift in the paradigm of humanities, from the model of the lone scholar to that of the interconnected team; and from the model of the durable paper publication to that of the digital, ephemeral product. The second DH Infrastructure Symposium will again be held on the UCLA campus on February 23-24, 2017, and will again gather the staff of various universities, libraries, and other scholarly organizations in Southern California to discuss different approaches to these challenges.
