About

The Bryn Mawr community will be shaping the mission and goals of a digital scholarship program during the 2016-2017 academic year. If you would like to be involved in the planning process or have thoughts about directions we should explore, contact Alicia Peaker.

The digital scholarship program at Bryn Mawr encourages the intellectual curiosity at the center of a liberal arts education through critical engagements with digital technologies. The program serves as a hub for faculty, staff, and students interested in pursuing collaborative digital scholarship to connect and collectively cultivate digital proficiencies. Through training and consultations we equip and empower community members to make informed choices about how they will interact with, create, and critique digital technologies in relation to their chosen fields of study. By encouraging scholarly inquiry through digital methods and tools, we enhance each community member’s capacity for life-long learning.

Digital scholarship encompasses a wide range of digital methods and tools, from digital mapping (GIS) to text mining to data visualization to open access publishing, and emphasizes interdisciplinary and interdepartmental collaborations among many members of the Bryn Mawr community.
