Building Digital Communities in the Humanities and Social Sciences
The pervasiveness of digital technologies and social networking has created unprecedented possibilities for engagement between academic and non-academic communities, including among academics, research partners and stakeholders, students, and interested members of the public. But how might digital research infrastructure—including digital research commons such as the Canadian Humanities and Social Sciences Commons (hsscommons.ca)—support community-building and engagement efforts in Canada, specifically? Join panelists Hannah Paveck (Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences), Julia Bullard (University of British Columbia), Tanja Niemann (Érudit), and Ray Siemens, Alyssa Arbuckle, and Graham Jensen (University of Victoria) for a discussion of how questions of digital access, diversity and inclusion, design, governance, and open access publication might actively inform the development of not-for-profit, community-driven infrastructure at the national level (and beyond). This event will take place in English. Bilingual titles and descriptions are for reference purposes.
