We invite you to join us for our annual Digital Research Symposium!
When: May 29, 2020
What: Lightning talks highlighting student research
Where: Zoom information will be provided via a reminder email the week of the event.
At UC Santa Cruz, students are engaged in creative, critical research using digital tools and platforms. The Digital Scholarship Research Symposium provides students an opportunity to present their digital projects in a professional setting and to allow them a venue to show their project in its functioning form, allowing them to engage in a scholarly setting with their colleagues, faculty, and other academic professionals and receive meaningful feedback about their projects. This iteration of the Digital Scholarship Symposium would continue to provide an opportunity to share finished projects through a platform on the DSC website and focus on lightning talks with a Q&A session and a digital showcase of their projects.
