Since the opening of the DML in fall of 2009 we have had an increasing number of guests come to the BGC each semester to discuss the ways in which they use the digital medium in their research and teaching. An early event entitled The Artifact in the Age of New Media saw eminent scholars Dan Cohen, Josh Greenberg, Carrie Reborah Barrett and Amelia Peck talk about the role of digital technology in the study of material artifacts, setting the tone for these types of events. Subsequent events have included: a symposium on digital mapping; a brown bag talk by Kathleen Fitzpatrick; a conversation amongst scholars, editors, and university presses about the future of digital scholarly communication; and THATCamp Museums NYC last May.

As these events have become more numerous, it has become apparent that they constitute a current of thought that now reaches into every part of the institution. As such, we have finally decided to gather them together under the banner Digital Solutions for Research and Teaching in the Humanities to show how these events connect to one another and how digital work relates to the other research and exhibition work being done at the BGC. Below is the entire semester schedule of events (some have already passed). In the future we will be trying to release an entire schedule of events prior to the semester.
