Lost and Found in the Digital

As the number of digital humanities approaches continues to grow, libraries and other institutions must increasingly grapple with how to catalog, preserve, and present digital work, which means engaging big, time-critical conversations about standards and possibilities in the face of constant technological emergence. In this presentation, however, Marisa Parham, Professor of English at Amherst College, asks us to think about the smallness of individuals, namely the interplay between the ephemeral and the institutional that has become increasingly recognizable as foundational to many scholars' intellectual growth.

As the digital increasingly becomes part of the terrain, what will count as a scholarly legacy? What have digital affordances fundamentally changed about our potential relationships to the scholarly industrial complex? What has been lost? Who has been found? And how do these considerations fit into a larger conversation about digital preservation?

Emergent Research events are aimed at better understanding the various types of research undertaken across campus, particularly as they relate to library services and support, opportunities for collaboration, data management and preservation, and beyond.
