Get Involved

Want to know more about digital scholarship? Do you have a project, or an idea for a potential project? Here’s how you can get involved at the Sherman Centre.

Learn

Each quarter, we offer a range of events related to digital scholarship. The Demystifying Digital Scholarship series runs throughout the year. We also have occasional one-off tutorials related to specific skills or tools, and monthly colloquium events where you can hear about digital scholarship projects, and ask questions of the researchers.

The best way to find out about these events is to join our mailing list or check our blog.

Is there a tool or skill that you think should be featured in a tutorial? Tell us about it, and we’ll see what we can do.

Present

One of the best ways to develop digital scholarship skills or a specific project is to talk about it with a curious audience and hear their feedback and questions. Each month, the Sherman Centre Colloquium gathers to hear a researcher discussing an aspect of their work. Some Colloquium events focus on finished projects or project results, but we also welcome talks about future projects, or works-in-progress. Each Colloquium event lasts an hour. How you use that hour is flexible: you can present a formal talk, or develop a less formal conversation. All we ask is that you keep at least 20 minutes for questions and answers with your audience.

To apply to speak at an upcoming colloquium, please contact Paige Morgan.

Work with technology and tools

Do you need specific software or unique hardware? We may have what you need and/or be able to acquire it for you. We have a makerspace stocked with Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards and their related equipment. We have two 3D printers for prototyping; and (as of January 2015) three sophisticated workstations loaded with a wide range of software to support a broad range of digital scholarship needs. We also offer project storage space up to 5TB.

If you’re new to makerspace work, we also offer a micro-course, Electronics for the Rest of Us, that provides an intro to working with Arduinos.

Become a Research Fellow

Each year, the Sherman Centre sponsors Graduate Research Fellows, providing a stipend, cubicle space, and easy access to Sherman Centre staff.* Research Fellows have input into Sherman Centre programming, access to talk with guest speakers, and opportunities to present their work on the Sherman Centre website and at the Colloquium. Applications open in spring.

* Graduate student researchers and postdoctoral fellows may also be granted non-stipendiary research fellowships, which provide a Sherman Centre cubicle, input into programming and access to staff and speakers, and opportunities to present their work.
