The University Libraries will host prominent digital humanities scholar Orla Murphy of University College Cork, Ireland, for a presentation on Monday, April 20, from 2 to 3 p.m., in Foster Auditorium, 102 Paterno Library. “Inch by Inch… Building Institutional Capacity for DH Through Inter- and Trans-disciplinary Collaboration”. A reception will follow in Mann Assembly Room, 103 Paterno Library.

Murphy teaches in the School of English and in the discipline of Digital Arts and Humanities at Cork, where her research interests lie in how culture is, was and will be communicated in all its forms, including 3D representation, and in how we read, represent and share knowledge in new networked, virtual environments. In this presentation, she will discuss the development of institutional capacity for Digital Humanities, addressing the paradigm of distributed disciplinary status and what it can offer as a model for capacity development in the field.
