How can we engage in social justice work with our teaching, scholarship, and practice? How can we think critically about the interdisciplinary, intersectional methods that social justice work necessitates? How might we consider the ways that digital libraries and DH pedagogy can create both digital and physical spaces for students to follow theory with action?
DLFxDHSI was a one-day unconference—a grassroots, conversation-based event without predetermined presentations—on the theme of digital libraries, digital humanities, and social justice, hosted by the Digital Library Federation in partnership with the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) in Victoria, BC, June 8-9, 2018. The event began with a DHSI Institute Lecture by DLF Executive Director Bethany Nowviskie (“Reconstitute the World: Machine Reading Archives of Mass Extinction“), and a joint DLF/DHSI poster/digital demo session and reception on Friday, June 8, 2018. Highly collaborative and interactive DLFx unconference sessions ran throughout the day on Saturday, June 9.
Check out the Saturday’s schedule and shared notes.
The DLFxDHSI unconference was hosted by DLF’s Digital Library Pedagogy Group (#DLFteach) and the newly-formed DLF Digital Scholarship Working Group for digital scholarship librarians and coordinators.
Attendees had the opportunity to apply to present digital demos during Friday evening’s reception and/or lightning talks during Saturday’s closing plenary. Lightning talks are engaging, high-energy 90-second presentations. All submissions related to the unconference theme of digital libraries, digital humanities, and social justice. Meet our presenters!
