DASI, the Digital American Studies Initiative, will offer a second public Zoom meeting for American studies scholars to discuss how the ongoing pandemic pushes us to embrace digital technologies to an extent unimaginable just a few months ago. The meeting will take place on September 28, 2020, at 10am.

We want to use this second get-together to look back at the past semester and to identify lessons learned and emerging best practices for the coming one. Rather than focusing solely on teaching, we want to reflect more broadly on the challenges and opportunities this sudden wave of digitization presents to our field in terms of teaching, research, and other aspects of academic work.

The meeting will be open to everyone, returnees as well as participants who could not join the virtual brown bag meeting in June. Please write to das-contact [at] americanstudies.de to request the URL.
