We would like to extend our thanks to all who participated in our inaugural LASTS Digital Humanities Pre-conference. The session was well attended and, I hope, well received. We had a healthy mix of enthusiasm and skepticism for DH, lots of great DH examples and resources, and cookies — apparently the digital humanities dialog begins with cookies. Below are links and slides from yesterday’s presentation and a Wordle highlighting “DH in Three Words” submitted by the attendees.
