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 Kristy Golubiewski-Davis 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.  This year there will be two reading groups.

The DLA will purchase copies for participants of the newly published anthology A New Companion to Digital Humanities, 2nd Edition edited by Susan Schreibman, Ray Siemens, and John Unsworth, from which readings will be selected each month.

The Library will purchase copies of Laying the Foundation: Digital Humanities in Academic Libraries edited by John White and Heather Gilbert for those who wish to have a physical copy.  A full .pdf copy can be found online here.

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.



The application period for this years reading group has passed.  If you would like to join at a latter date, please contact Kristy Golubiewski-Davis.


Each DLA Reading Group will meet once a month, on Fridays from 1:30 – 3:00 P.M. The location and specific dates of the reading groups are to be determined.  On Fridays with scheduled all faculty meetings we will end at 2:30 P.M. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the physical access provided, please email the DLA.
