DLA Reading Group 2015-2016

Photo of cover of book titled "Between Humanities and the Digital"The DLA invites all faculty and staff interested in exploring themes and issues related to the digital liberal arts to join the DLA reading group. Led by Alicia Peaker and Jason Mittell, the reading group is an open forum for learning about the plurality of approaches and critically assessing their applications in digital scholarship and projects. The DLA will purchase copies for participants of the newly published anthology Between Humanities and the Digital, from which readings will be selected each month.

In order to establish a community and ongoing conversation, we ask that you commit to regularly attending the reading group for the academic year. If you are unable to attend regularly, the Behind the Scenes luncheons are an excellent “drop-in” alternative and opportunity to learn about and discuss digital work on campus.


To apply to the reading group, please fill out this three question form, which should take you 2-5 minutes.


The DLA Reading Group will meet once a month, on Fridays from 1:30 – 3:00 P.M., likely at Alicia’s house, which is walking distance from campus. On Fridays with scheduled all faculty meetings we will end at 2:30 P.M. Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be offered. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the physical access provided, please email the DLA.
