Editor at Large

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 From November 14 to 20, I acted as an editor-at-large for DHNow. It was a strange week and I was probably not up for the task as much as I would like. But I did enjoy the experience, and tried to do a good job. I found that checking in several times a day, for brief periods, was more useful for me than reading for an hour a day, as recommended. Though much of the material in the feed was election related, I tried to find some items that were not. For me, the exposure to new projects and the discussions of ongoing projects, was the most interesting, and this kind of content makes DHNow a valuable resource.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 High-lighted by the editors during my week at DHNow was an effort by UCLA students to create a database of early African American films. Their website http://dhbasecamp.humanities.ucla.edu/afamfilm/ describes their data, allows others to access and use it, while also presenting findings and interpretations made by the students. It is a fascinating and well-presented site.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Also of interest on DHNow were the job announcements. While I am not looking for a job at the moment, reading about the kinds of opportunities out there, and the skills and experience that are required, was eye opening. Things I like about librarianship, and my current CUNY education experience, like the multi-faceted, inter-disciplinary nature of inquiry, appear to be an advantage in much of the DH field.

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at cuny.is/dps17.
