From the blogVideos for Digital Pragmata April 25 Panel Session
On Thursday, April 25 VCU Libraries hosted three speakers for the Digital Pramata panel, Crafting Content: Creation, Scholarship and Organization. .
Digital pragmata flourish at the nexus of research, teaching, and creativity. They are the work of creators, scholars, and students in the arts and humanities. They can be textual databases, creative visualizations of information, multimedia explorations, collaboratively annotated maps, and a thousand other projects.
In three sessions focusing on digital pragmata, we will explore the creation of digital objects near and far. We hope that you will join us. The sessions are designed for faculty and graduate students, though others with a strong interest in the subject matter will be welcome. Seating will be limited and will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Please complete the online registration form and bring a copy of your registration confirmation to the sessions to ensure that you receive priority in seating. This will not not guarantee a seat, however, so please also arrive early.
Parking will be available for a fee in the West Broad Street and West Main Street parking decks. If special accommodations will be needed, please call (804) 828-0593. Refreshments will be available following the March 26 and April 25 events. The May 2 event will be brown-bag event with light refreshments provided during the discussion.
The Digital Pragmata initiative is a collaboration among VCU Libraries, the VCU Center for Teaching Excellence and the VCU Office of Research. For further discussion of digital pragmata, see our blog.
