Posted in DH Blog, and Friday Feature

Title: Friday Feature
By: Hayley Brazier & Heidi Kaufman

Welcome back to the blog. Before we move into the Friday Feature, an important reminder! We’re co-sponsoring a Data/Media/Digital Graduate Student Symposium (4/5/19) with NMCC and SOJC. The deadline is just two weeks away on February 15, 2019
 
We invite submissions for 15-minute presentations from UO graduate students on any aspect of Data/Media/Digital studies for a one-day symposium on Friday, April 5, 2019 to be held in the Knight Library’s new DREAM Lab collaborative workspace. Presentations can be based on work in progress or on research and work in the final stages of development. Proposals should specify clear scholarly or pedagogical goals, and should articulate how the design or argument of a data/media/digital project might address those goals. This event will give us an opportunity to showcase exciting multi-disciplinary work being produced by graduate students across campus. Any kind of data, media, or digital studies project is welcome. Participants are expected to attend the Symposium for the full day. Lunch will be served for presenters.
 
Please submit 300-word (max.) abstract and CV to uogradsymposium@gmail.com

Questions about this event can be sent to any of the following: Bish Sen:bsen@uoregon.edu (School of Journalism and Communication), Colin Koopman: koopman@uoregon.edu (New Media & Culture Graduate Certificate + Philosophy), or Heidi Kaufman: hkaufman@uoregon.edu (Digital Humanities + English).

We would also like to draw your attention to the winter term workshop series, “Owning Your Omeka” a three-part sequence designed to help you create an Omeka website from start to finish. Omeka is a publishing platform used commonly among academics, museum professionals, and libraries. Omeka allows us to conceptualize and build multimedia exhibits without having to learn coding languages. The first workshop is running this afternoon, and there are still spots available (RSVP here: https://library.uoregon.edu/calendar). The workshops are free and open to all. We hope you will join us!
