Marking the Arts and Humanities
During the 2018-2019 academic year, the Institute for Digital Arts & Humanities will explore the theme: Marking the Arts and Humanities.
By extending last year’s theme on making, we hope to interweave making with marking to create countless opportunities to critically engage the sources and processes that comprise a layered approach to the theories and praxes underlining the digital arts and humanities. With a particular focus on materials and artifacts related to texts, visual and performative arts and music, we will delve into the notion of marking in a multimedia context. We will examine the implications of markup though data cleaning, analysis, and visualizations. We will ponder the possibilities of marking time and space. We will also engage students and faculty through educational research workshops, digital pedagogical collaborations, and creative classroom endeavors. As we move in and out materials, methods and disciplines, we will highlight the inscriptions, overlays, and remixes that encourage digital arts & humanities scholars to make their mark in the world.
