I just got back from a conference in Ireland titled, A Vision Of Digital Humanities In Ireland (this link is to my conference report). The conference was preceded by the announcement and unveiling of DHO Discover. Shawn Day (in photo above) demonstrated the new discovery tool that brings together metadata about 6000 objects across different digital collections in Ireland. The conference was a capstone event for the Digital Humanities Observatory which is now coming to an end.
I’m at the HuCon 2011: Current Graduate Research in Humanities Computing organized by the Humanities Computing graduate students here at the University of Alberta. My
conference report is here. It is being written as we go. Milena Radzikowska is the keynote speaker.
Next week is HuCon 2011, our graduate research conference at the University of Alberta for humanities computing. See HuCon 2011: Current Graduate Research in Humanities Computing for more.
The keynotes will be Ray Siemens from Victoria and MilenaRadzikowska from Mount Royal. It is a one day conference that is catered. Come and see what the next generation of graduate students is doing.
This week I was invited to give a number of talks at the University of North Dakota. Dr. Crystal Alberts organized the talks (along with others). At UND I spoke on:
- Incorporating the digital in the humanities. This talk was about incorporating the digital into humanities teaching.
- Supporting the Digital Humanities. This talk was for librarians and discussed mostly how libraries can support our work.
- Cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities. This talk was delivered by videoconference and went out to a larger state audience discussing cyberinfrastructure in North Dakota.
Crystal has a nice long blog post on participation and inclusion the digital humanities. The post,On Becoming a Digital Humanist talks about Steve Ramsay’s MLA comments and what I wrote on inclusion.
The web site is up for HuCon 2011: Current Graduate Research in Humanities Computing. This is a one day conference organized by the Humanities Computing graduate students that will take place on March 11th, 2011.
