Showcase Date: February 12, 2016
Submissions for Presentations Due: January 10, 2016
Hosted by GW Digital Humanities Institute and GW Libraries
Are you launching a Digital Humanities (DH) project and figuring out the next steps? Do you want to meet other people at GW who are interested in how the arts and humanities interact with digital media?
We invite members of the GW community to join the second annual DH Showcase at Gelman Library. Each person (or team) will present a DH project or endeavor (in any stage of its production). This event will provide a venue to introduce your project to other people and receive feedback or advice while also making connections with people across the GW community who might share similar interests. We hope that new conversations will open up about methods, tools, challenges, questions, and possibilities arising across projects.
Our definition of DH is broad and can entail anything from a database or tool to a blog or creative work, and we welcome presentations integrating online media or digital cultures into teaching in (or beyond) the space of the classroom.
If you are interested in taking part in this event, please contact Prof. Jonathan Hsy (Co-Director of the Digital Humanities Institute) with your name, email, affiliation/title, and title of project(s). A one-paragraph blurb about your project is welcome but not required.
On Thursday, December 3, Fenwick Library Wings B & C will be closed for Fire Safety Testing from 10:00 p.m. to Midnight.
- Wing A will remain open
- No access to the stacks or Fenwick Study Rooms in Wings B & C from 10:00 p.m. to Midnight.
- Please use Gateway Library for group study

You've shopped on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but now it is #GivingTuesday, a chance to give back to your community. We invite you to make a gift that will impact every single student at GWU by giving to GW Libraries. Whether it is providing scholarly resources for research, making unique special collections accessible or offering a comfy chair in which to study, the Libraries support every student.
When you give to GW on #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back no matter where you choose to direct your support, you give the gift of education.
