Scholars' Lab Fall Symposium

Day: November 3, 2017

Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Location: Scholars' Lab, Alderman Library

The SLab Fall Symposium will be an all-day event with two workshops, a lunch, and a design jam. Workshop attendance will be by application.

This essay describes, models, and advocates for the role of reflective design in bibliography and textual studies. Popularized by Donald Norman, reflective design promotes critical inquiry over usability and exploratory prototyping over fully realized productions. We highlight four projects undertaken by the authors that embody reflective design, including three that explore the crossed codes of print and electronic books. A larger aim of the essay is to position bibliotextual scholarship and pedagogy as design-oriented practices that can be used to imagine the future as well as reconstruct the past.
From Daniela Rosner's Making Core Memory site
The software code for the Apollo rockets was stored in woven memory, handmade by operators who NASA engineers nicknamed LOLs, short for "Little Old Ladies." In a series of workshops, participants weave 'core memory’ and collaboratively build an electric quilt that tells the story of women's contribution to NASA innovation. When they plug their 'core memory' patch into the conductive quilt, the quilt plays firsthand accounts of 1960s core memory production while sending tweets via our @lolweaversaccount. We use this moment in engineering history to examine craftwork’s intellectual contribution to innovation — how craftwork becomes hardware manufacturing, and how hardware manufacturing becomes craftwork.

Pellagios Workshop

Day: November 29, 2017

Time: 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

Location: TBD

From the workshop description:

This workshop will presenting the Pelagios Commons Infrastructure, its tools and goals and its partners, especially to a US audience. Within the Pedagogy Working Group, we assessed a noticeable gap in the familiarity with Pelagios between Europe and United States: whereas many workshops have been hosted across Europe and have made Pelagios well-known, with the result of a large collaboration across universities and an increasing number of annotators on Recogito, the US have stayed in the margins, with very few centers of collaboration and even less usage of the Pelagios Tools for teaching and scholarly projects.

In light of this situation, we will provide hands-on tutorials for scholars and students of the University and outside the University, who wish to familiarize themselves with the process of geo-annotation and georeferencing, contribute to online gazetteers of the Ancient world, and have an overview of the main GIS applications and softwares.
