When do digitized or born digital research materials become "data"? From images to maps to text corpora to historical records, humanists work with and create various types of materials as part of their research. Across disciplines, there are increasing discussions surrounding the merits, challenges, and ethics of sharing one's research in order to support new scholarship, facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations, and increase transparency. How does humanities research challenge efforts and assumptions around sharing data? What opportunities arise when humanities data is more readily available for others to use? The following panelists will explore questions surrounding the conceptualization of "data" within the humanities as well as the cultural and ethical dimensions of sharing this type of research in the digital age. Panelists include: Ed Tripplett, PhD, Art, Art History, and Visual Studies; Thavolia Glymph, PhD, History and Law; and Astrid Giugni, PhD, English. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
