Last week I was at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences attending the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities 2017 conference. (See the program here.) It was a brilliant conference organized by the folk at Ryerson. I loved being back in downtown Toronto. The closing keynote by Tracy Fullerton on Finer Fruits: A game as participatory text was fascinating. You can see my conference notes here.
Stéfan Sinclair and I were awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award for our work on Voyant and Hermeneutica. I was also involved in some of the presentations:
- Todd Suomela presented a paper I contributed to on “GamerGate and Digital Humanities: Applying an Ethics of Care to Internet Research”
- I presented a paper with Stéfan Sinclair on “The Beginnings of Content Analysis: From the General Inquirer to Sally Sedelow”.
- Greg Whistance-Smith presented a demo/poster on “Methodi.ca: A Commons for Text Analysis Methods”
- Jinman Zhang presented a demo/poster on our work on “Commenting, Gamification and Analytics in an Online Writing Environment: GWrit (Game of Writing)”
