SPARC-ACRL forum "Understanding the Implications of Open Education: MOOCs and More" June 29, 2013
This special issue of NANO (http://www.nanocrit.com/) asks how, when, and for whom digital humanities is also public humanities, with particular attention to project-based research.
This special issue of Environmental Humanities aims to reflect on intersections between digital and environmental humanities from a variety of perspectives. We hope this collection will enrich understandings of the extent to which digital technologies and resources are informing current environmental humanities scholarship, while also identifying opportunities and challenges that these new tools present.
We want you to propose an innovative and transformative project using the British Library’s digital collections and if your idea is chosen, the Labs team will work with you to make it happen and you could win a prize of up to £3,000.
