Participate in SAVE AS: Lightning Talks III

Propose a talk by midnight on Tuesday 9/10

Event: Wednesday, September 18, 2013, 7pm, Magill Library Philips Wing

Last year, 40-something students, staff, and faculty gathered together for the first two SAVE AS: Lightning Talks events, each presenting digitally-minded 2-minute micro-presentations on topics like animation in a digital world, tumblr and intellectual property rights, the user paradox, and yes, even a brain-melting meta-lesson on how to give a good presentation in two minutes.

Amid the hastened shouts of presenters and the polite murmuring of the packed audience, one thing was clear: We have to do this again. To that end, SAVE AS (a collaboration between Digital Scholarship in the Library, Instructional & Information Technology Services, the Hurford Center of the Arts & Humanities, and Tri-Co Digital Humanities) invites you to pitch a 2-minute presentation on your own digital scholarship, the germ of an idea, an app, a game, digital notation, twitter etiquette, something you’ve done, something you want to do. Share past successes or use your soapbox to source future collaborators.

Essentially: Anything that uses, abuses, accepts or rejects digital technology in a way you find interesting.

To propose a talk, send your name, a title, and a short description of your talk by midnight the evening of Tuesday 9/10 to Digital Scholarship Laurie Allen at lallen@haverford.edu.
