AIUCD 2017 Conference & 3rd EADH Day (24-28 January 2017)

Dixit Workshop: Tuesday January 24th, 2017

The educational and social impact of Digital Scholarly Edition

Digilab and DiXiT network (http://dixit.uni-koeln.de/) organize a one day workshop on the educational application and social impact of digital scholarly editions. The goal of the workshop is to share experiences and foster theoretical reflections about the impact of digital scholarly editing products and methods, primarily in the educational context, but also in the more general social context. The use of digital technologies in teaching prompts a reflection on the added value of using these technologies and raises some controversial questions. At the same time, digital research outcomes and methods should not be considered as separate from the more general cultural and social context. In this sense, digital scholarly editions can play a relevant role in the public engagement of humanities scholarship,
