NINES Workshop in Digital Scholarship
This is to announce a week-long workshop for scholars undertaking digital projects in nineteenth-century British and American literary and cultural studies. The workshop will be held at the University of Virginia, 18-22 July 2005, and will provide a practical setting where scholars can work at the development of their individual projects with other scholars who have shared interests, goals, and problems to be addressed. The theoretical, technical, administrative, and institutional issues connected to the development of digital scholarly work will focus the workshop's activities, which will be organized around and driven by the needs of the specific projects themselves.
The workshops will be run by faculty and staff at U. of Virginia involved with the NINES (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-Century Electronic Scholarship) and ARP (Applied Research in Patacriticism) projects.
