Digital Projects Showcase applications due Friday, October 26, 2018

Walker Library Digital Scholarship Initiatives invites proposals for speakers to present a digital project with emphasis in digital methods or technologies in research, teaching, or outreach from any discipline or area at MTSU. Projects may be individual or collaborative and from MTSU faculty, staff or students. Great opportunity to highlight research, ideas, works-in-progress, project milestones/challenges/summaries, and to get conference presentation experience, and learn about other projects being done at MTSU.

Examples of digital projects include (but are not limited to):

  • spatial research (with StoryMaps, ArcGIS, QGIS, Zeemaps, CartoDB, Batchgeo);
  • text analysis (with Oxygen, OpenRefine, TEI, Viewshare, or Voyant);
  • crowdsourcing or annotation research (Hypothes.is, Scripto);
  • digital publishing (Scalar, Git, PressForward, Twine, Adobe, Drupal);
  • digitization projects (with Omeka or CONTENTdm) or web applications;
  • applying data visualizations or machine learning for discovery (with Tableau, R, D3, Python);
  • network analysis (with Palladio or Gephi);
  • temporal analysis (with TimelineJS, SIMILE);
  • qualitative research (NVivo) or statistical analysis (SPSS);
  • immersive media; computational methodologies; and others                                                                                                                                        

Selected projects will present in a lightning round style Showcase on Wednesday, November 28, 2018. Presenters will have 2, 4, or 7 minutes to present the use of technologies and overview of their digital projects. Computer, internet access, whiteboard and a microphone will be available for use.
