What: DH Interest Group meeting and “open mic”
When: Friday, December 7, 12:00-2:00
Where: Mann Assembly Room, Paterno Library (next to Special Collections)
The Libraries are hosting another digital humanities interest group meeting — this time with an “open mic” — on Friday, December 7, from noon to 2:00, so come ready to talk about your DH projects, share your brilliant DH ideas, and engage with colleagues in Liberal Arts and the Libraries about how they are using technology in research and classrooms.
There will be refreshments and snacks on hand, but you are encouraged to bring your lunch (and a friend!).
We already have a few folks willing to share how they are using technology in their humanities research and teaching, but we would love to hear about your projects, too! If you have something you wish to share at the “open mic,” or want to propose a topic for the meeting, feel free to contact me via email [dawn at psu dot edu], or let us know in the comments below. You can also just show up and share your ideas or projects — just keep in mind, if you want to hook-up your laptop or need special tech to share your ideas, you should definitely let us know ahead of time.
If you want to help us gauge attendance (and assess the need for snacks), you can answer the poll below. We look forward to seeing you there!
Some of the projects that will be featured in the open mic are listed here (check back later for more — we’ll keep adding as they come in):
Chris Long will talk about his enhanced digital book project with Cambridge
Julia Schrank and Willa Silverman will talk about their class project Mapping Maupassant’s Bel-Ami
Sabra Statham will share her work on The People’s Contest project and Omeka
Kevin Clair will talk about linked open bibliographies for digital humanities scholarship
Dawn Childress will share her plans to transcribe, encode, and transform a 19th c. journal and a cool new tool for transcription
