  • Librarian-faculty partnerships in teaching digital humanities


    I’m a history and digital services librarian at Cornell University. Like many campuses, we don’t [yet] have a digital humanities center, but we do have librarians with expertise in various areas of digital scholarship who have partnered successfully with faculty on dozens of digital projects. What I’d like to focus on is librarian-faculty partnerships to teach digital humanities. I have experience with two different approaches—assisting/partnering in an undergraduate digital history course and developing an intensive three day boot camp of digital technologies for graduate students. I’m interested in discussing other partnering approaches, strategies, and experiences to see what we can learn from each other.

  • Animating maps


    I am interested to learn from someone who is technologically savvy about the tools and methods needed for animating historical maps to show spatial and temporal movement. For instance:

    I’d also like to discuss the value and potential of having undergraduate students animate maps in upper division history courses.

  • historical network modeling


    I want to create computer models of real-life social networks in history.  My research interests have to do with educational, literary, and religious networks, but anything goes.    If anyone else is working on that or interested, I would love to talk with you.    I am taking baby steps in this direction and I want to explore issues of methodology, software tools, models of existing projects,  etc.

  • One Week Warning-Time for Session Proposals!!!


    It is hard to believe that THATCamp is only a week away. Please help us create the schedule by letting us know what kinds of sessions interest you . You can propose discussions about questions and topics, working sessions where participants learn a skill, working groups where participants work on a project, or just about anything else related to Digital Humanities.

    To add your proposal, simply click on the “+New” tab at the very top. If this doesn’t work out, simply reply to my post. If you would prefer to share your idea directly with our coordinator, you can send him a message at ude.l1516431487lahsr1516431487am@eg1516431487dirbw1516431487ort.d1516431487ivad1516431487

    Participants can add their ideas in the morning session as well. Once all suggestions are in, everyone will vote and indicate which sessions appeal to them the most. We take it from there-majority rules but no session idea is ever rejected because participants can always start their own “grassroots” sessions in the lobby. Ain’t democracy grand?
