Throughout the academic year, CU students and faculty will address how they practice digital scholarship and what benefits there are to doing so. We hope that these informal talks will increase the exposure of the various approaches available as well as the novel research questions that can be addressed through leveraging and/or critiquing digital research methods and tools. 

The brown bags generally take place every other Wednesday at 12 noon in Norlin E206 (CRDDS), and all are welcome to join us for learning, tea, and cookies. Most presentations can be found on our OSF repository.

If you would like to give a short talk and share your digital scholarship research at a brown bag session, please contact Nickoal Eichmann-Kalwara
