This October, directors and project managers from the nodes of the Advanced Research Consortium (ARC) met in Raleigh, North Carolina to discuss the expansion, implementation, and sustainability of ARC as a digital infrastructure for the future of humanities scholarship. Representatives from ARC, including the IDHMC’s own director Laura Mandell, Nineteenth-Century Scholarship Online (NINES), 18thConnect, the Medieval Electronic Scholarly Alliance (MESA), the Renaissance English Knowledge Base (REKn), and Modernist Networks (ModNets) were in attendance.

The last day of the meeting, scholars and independent software developers from the research triangle travelled to North Carolina State University for DH Day. A storify of the days events and discussions can be found here (and thank you to NCState’s Barry Peddycord). The NCSU libraries and scholarly community also graciously video archived the days events, and those videos can be found below.

Thank you to NCSU’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Tim Stinson, and Rachel Hodder for bringing us all to North Carolina State University, and thank you to all the ARC nodes for making these productive discussions possible.
