We’re happy to announce the projects and teams that will be attending the first TriangleSCI in Chapel Hill in November.
In this first year we had a very short window for submitting proposals, but still received submissions for a large number of excellent projects and teams, and had a difficult time selecting from among them. The following 5 teams have been invited to attend in November, and all have confirmed their participation.
- Archiving, Accessing and Analyzing Digitized Newspapers (Mike Barker, Brent Carter, Nick Graham, Pam Lach, Stewart Varner, Stephanie Williams)
- Crowd-sourced Curation and Publication of Special Collections Materials (Ryan Baumann, Meg Brown, Hugh Cayless, Noah Huffman, Liz Milewicz, Josh Sosin)
- Presenting Positive Information about Sikhism and Sikh Americans Beyond the Social Studies Textbook (Sean C.D. Colbert-Lewis, Danielle M. Colbert-Lewis, Karen E. Grimwood, Hafsa Murad, Jamillah Scott Branch, Matthew A. Cook)
- Publishing Makerspace (Courtney Berger, Marjorie Fowler, John D. Martin, Sylvia Miller, David Phillips, Chelcie Rowell)
- Visualization and Virtual Spaces: Scholarly Communication Beyond Text (Paul Fyfe, Victoria Szabo, Markus Wust, David Zielinkski, Angela Zoss, Anna Bentkowska-Kafel)
Over the next few weeks, we’ll post more details about each team and their project, and hope to begin some conversations around the issues addressed in these projects.
We’re also very pleased that Tom Scheinfeldt has accepted our invitation to attend the TriangleSCI in November, to act as an interlocutor for all of the participating teams at different points during the Institute, stimulating them to think outside their specific goals, and helping to draw out commonalities between them.
We’re excited about the group being brought together, and expect big things. We hope you will follow along on this blog and @TriangleSCI and join the conversation even if you’re not attending the November event.
