DayofDH 2016 will take place on April 8th, hosted by LINHD

To all digital humanists, or people working on digital humanities projects,

 

Please, save the date and join us for the annual Day of Digital Humanities that will take place on April 8th, 2016.

 

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is a project looking at a day in the work life of people involved in digital humanities computing. Every year it draws people from across the world together to document, with text and image, the events and activities of their day. The goal of the project is to weave together the journals of participants into a resource that seeks to answer, “Just what do digital humanists really do?”

 

This year, the event will be hosted on behalf of centerNet at the Laboratorio de Innovación en Humanidades Digitales (LINHD) in Madrid. For this reason, want to innovate and make the day more collaborative. We will boost multilingual participation and groupal cooperative activities.

We are working on the website now, www.dayofdh2016.uned.es which will be opened for registration soon. If you have any suggestions or ideas in the meantime, please, let us know!

Digital humanities has developed in a range of disciplines and locations across the globe. Initially emergent from initiatives in textual encoding, database building, or critiques of design and media cultures, the field is increasingly drawn together. Present scholarship works at the intersections of what had been disparate approaches. Much digital humanities scholarship is driven by an ethical commitment to preserve and broaden access to cultural materials. The most engaged global DH scholarship values digital tools that enhance the capacity of scholarly critique to reflect a broad range of histories, as well as present geographical and cultural positions. Projects that seek to bring grant resources from the West are often met with well-developed and challenging critiques emergent around the globe from communities deeply engaged in their own cultural preservation, as well as in building relationships with other similarly engaged scholars. This symposium, which will include an extended workshop and a mixture of presentation types, engages squarely with issues of power, access, and equity as they affect scholarship in the digital humanities.

New release: Versioning Machine 5.0

The Versioning Machine Team are delighted to announce a new release of the Versioning Machine: 5.0 (http://v-machine.org/). The Versioning Machine is a framework and an interface for displaying multiple versions of text encoded according to the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines. This new release incorporates a number of new features,  including the ability to resize and reorganize text panels, panning and zooming in the image viewer, and text-audio interlinking. Moreover, the Versioning Machine’s underlying code has also been completely revised to make it more compatible with newer technologies.

The new Versioning Machine blog contains also a section called ‘VM in use’. There you will find projects that have used VM in the past. If you are a VM user and you would like that us to link to your edition, please send us a short project description and a link to your project website.

As ever, we welcome feedback on the VM and if you have questions about using it please contact the VM team via the comment page at http://v-machine.org/comments/

Building and Sustaining a Digital Humanities Center taught by Julia Flanders
Digital humanities centers are complex, situated ecosystems that operate within many different kinds of constraints. Starting one is difficult; running one is harder; keeping one going for the long term is hardest of all. This class will look at a range of different types of centers, considering a variety of institutional locations, staffing models, funding approaches, and research agendas. Using real-world cases drawn from the international digital humanities context and from class participants, we’ll investigate a series of practical challenges including communication mechanisms, data management planning, fundraising and fiscal strategies, engaging with students, and space planning. The course will give participants an opportunity to develop concrete plans for their own center (real or hypothetical), as well as a broader familiarity with existing models. Participants should be prepared to think through the practical and intelllectual challenges of establishing and maintaining a digital humanities or digital scholarship center. Familiarity with the general landscape of digital humanities will be assumed and will be important for participation.
