Day of DH Omnibus

Exhiliarating Day of DH at Virginia Commonwealth University.
This is a placeholder for a longer post or posts to follow if we get the opportunity to do more.

Started the day with very productive meeting with CWRC team and Open Sky Solutions on remaining details re: implementing Open Annotation data model in CWRC-Writer for standoff annoations, but with corresponding XML tags for those using TEI, etc. [Is anyone out there using OA for citations? If so, what’s your “motivation” or predicate?]

Then off to lunch lunch in a beautiful room in VCU special collections in a library building about to be transformed by renovation, a busy day of meeting fabulous people form the VCU library and from various depatments, debating often quite fiercely things DH and digital history and non-DH.

Thanks to John Glover, Richard Godbeer, and all the #digprag Digital Pragmata folks for making us feel so welcome, and to my thoughtful and challenging co-panellists Aaron McCollough and Stephen Robertson, not to mention all the other great folks we met at VCU. What a great community!

Gearing up for Day of DH 2014

Started my day with trip to the airport. Then two meetings.

Meeting #1 with a fabulous group of co-organizers about an upcoming conference on Literary History for the 21st century: Diversity and the Digital, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Orlando Project and the many ways that we’re using the digital to promote and explore the diversity of our cultural pasts. It will be May 2015: watch for a CFP soon!

Meeting #2 with CSDH/SCHN exec to debate the proposals for revisions to ADHO structures and processes, and to broaden our support for graduate student participation in our annual meetings at Congress to include support for unwaged members.

Now en route to Richmond VA for an exciting day tomorrow engaged in New Humanities Conversations with Aaron  McCollough, Stephen Robertson, Richard Godbeer, John Glover, and other folks at Digital Pragmata at Virginia Commonwealth University: what a great Day of DH it will be!
