Digital Scholarship Research Symposium

Digital Scholarship Research Symposium
We invite you to join us for our annual Digital Research Symposium!

When:  May 29th, 1:30–3:30pm

What: Lightning talks highlighting student research

Where: This will be a Zoom event. Register here.

At UC Santa Cruz, students are engaged in creative, critical research using digital tools and platforms.  The Digital Scholarship Research Symposium provides students an opportunity to present their digital projects in a professional setting and to allow them a venue to show their project in its functioning form, allowing them to engage in a scholarly setting with their colleagues, faculty, and other academic professionals and receive meaningful feedback about their projects.  This iteration of the Digital Scholarship Symposium would continue to provide an opportunity to share finished projects through a platform on the DSC website and focus on lightning talks with a Q&A session and a digital showcase of their projects.

Join us to explore public-facing, media-rich, critically engaged, and creative student research. 

 

Schedule will include:

Opening remarks by Elizabeth Cowell, Richard L. Press University Librarian Presidential Chair
3–7 minute lightning talks by UCSC students
Special lecture and round table events hosted by the DSC.

Apply to Present

Are you a student at UCSC?  Have you created a digital project?  Join us as a presenter! 

We invite all undergraduate and graduate students engaged in creative, critical research using digital tools and platforms to submit proposals for a digital lightning round presentation.  Presentations will be 3–7 minutes depending on the number of participants.

The Digital Lightning Rounds will be supplemented with an online exhibit that allows students to highlight the interactivity of their work by sharing live digital projects.  We encourage you to submit live projects or project prototypes when possible. Classroom work is welcome: you can submit a proposal for individual or group work as long as all authors are represented on the project.

Each presentation will include:

  • A 3–7 minute lightning talk (depending on the number of students)
  • An opportunity for your lightning talk to be recorded and hosted on the DSC website (by presenter's permission only)
  • A spot on our digital showcase that includes a project abstract, your name, an image, and a link to your project (if applicable)

Apply to Present

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until 5/22 or until full.
