Digital Pragmata: Scholar, Maker, Creator: New Humanities Conversations

When


Where

W.E. Singleton Center for the Performing Arts
922 Park Avenue, Richmond, VA 23284

Description

Digital pragmata flourish at the nexus of research, teaching, and creativity. They can be textual databases, creative visualizations of information, multimedia explorations, collaboratively annotated maps, and a thousand other projects. How do they fit into a world built on books and scholarly journals? Will these new ways of communicating displace a world made on paper, or will they blend into new forms of scholarly expression that grow from the best of the past?

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but please register. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad Street, West Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed, or to register offline, please call (804) 828-0593 prior to April 4.
