How can we better make place a conscious factor in our scholarship, teaching, and community-building? How can we reframe landscapes that are indelibly marked by colonial and violent histories? Please join us for the 2019 Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation Spring Symposium on Monday, March 4, and Tuesday, March 5.

The two-day event includes presentations and workshops that highlight the work of scholars external and internal to WSU who seek to reframe assumed narratives and representations of place. The program includes presentations on new digital scholarship, techniques, and innovative pedagogical practices with an eye toward collaborations and meaningful partnerships.

Day 1 of the symposium will feature public presentations from four invited speakers, followed by the “Reframing Landscapes Roundtable: Perspectives from the Plateau” discussion and reception. All presentations will be held from 10-3 p.m. in the CUB Junior Ballroom. The Roundtable will be held from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Elson S. Floyd Cultural center, with the reception to follow.

Day 2 of the symposium will include three workshops focusing on digital mapping and storytelling tools, to be held from 9-11:50 a.m. at the CDSC on the 4th floor of the Holland Library. The workshops will be followed by a panel discussion, “Place-based Pedagogy: A discussion of sharing ideas for incorporating place into teaching” from 1-2:15 p.m.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation, WSU Libraries, Department of English, Department of History, College of Education, and Native Programs. Please visit our website for more information and a full schedule of events.

The Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation is on the ceded lands of the Nez Perce Tribe and the traditional homelands of the Palus Band of Indians. We acknowledge their presence here since time immemorial and recognize their continuing connection to the land, to the water, and to their ancestors.
