Humanities Research Centers (2008)
SCI 6 assembled a group of recognized scholars and pioneers in digital scholarship, leaders in the humanities, and program officers from private and public funding agencies interested in advancing digital scholarship. Invited participants met for three days (July 13-15, 2008) at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
The participants reviewed and reflected upon experiences of the broader scholarly community in digital scholarship, the evolution of humanities scholarship, and examples of the ‘national models’ prepared by SCI. From this stimulating conversation, the following outcomes were expected:
- identification, description, and endorsement of some possible models for ‘national centers’; and
- strategies to move the creation of these models forward.
