CDHI Graduate Recruitment Fellowship Presentation Series: Melissa Dollman presents Grounded Truth and Showing Your Work

April 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Primary and secondary documents are referred to and repurposed, and special collections libraries and archives require specific citations for their use in a published article or book. So why not also require the same for those included in video and film works? Ph.D. student Melissa Dollman will present her continuing research on expanding the conceptual uses of video annotation tools. It may be easy to find multiple examples of their use in the classroom, as a professional development aid for instructors, or for online marketing purposes. Alternatively, Dollman explores and will demonstrate how a tool might be utilized for interactive citation—from media-based final projects by students to more widely distributed documentary programs and films—no differently than the obligatory, specific, footnotes that underpin text-based published works.
Melissa Dollman (msdollman@unc.edu) is pursuing her Ph.D. in American Studies. For 2016-2017 she is a CDHI Recruitment Fellow embedded in Davis Library, a Graduate Fellow on the Community Histories Workshop team, and an Initiative for Minority Excellence Fellow. Prior to UNC, she was a cataloguer, librarian, audiovisual archivist, consultant, intern, volunteer, adjunct faculty, exhibit developer, and researcher for a variety of commercial and public institutions.

Event is free and open to the public.

CDHI Graduate Recruitment Fellowships (GRFs) engage PhD and MFA students with digital humanities opportunities early in their graduate careers. The GRFs are sponsored by The Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI), The University Libraries, ITS Research and The Office of Arts and Sciences Information Services.
