On Friday, September 26, 2014, we held our very first Research Advancement and Innovation Forum. Mark Tebeau, Associate Professor and Director of Public History, presented on his ongoing research in developing a web-based toolkit for the annotation, analysis, and discovery of oral histories. In the brainstorming session that followed, there was a lot of discussion around ideas for features to extend the usefulness of this application to projects across multiple disciplines that have very different research questions and needs.

There was so much interest and excitement around this project, that the Nexus Lab is now putting out a call for participants in a working group focused on applying this toolkit to audio-based research for projects in different disciplines—click here if you are interested in joining this group.

Ultimately, we at the Nexus Lab think this was a great success and want to invite everyone to join us at our next Research Advancement and Innovation Forum on October 24, 2014, in the IHR Nexus Lab.
