Today, it’s blogging time for digital humanists all over the globe. I’m happy to participate in “Day of Digital Humanities 2010,” an initiative hosted at the University of Alberta in Canada.
According to the organizers,
A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is a community publication project that will bring together digital humanists from around the world to document what they do on one day, March 18th. The goal of the project is to create a web site that weaves together the journals of the participants into a picture that answers the question, “Just what do computing humanists really do?” Participants will document their day through photographs and commentary in a blog-like journal. The collection of these journals with links, tags, and comments will make up the final work which will be published online.
I think it’s a wonderful project — not merely for promoting the digital humanities, but also to gain insight in the working methods & daily routines of fellow scholars & teachers. I expect to learn a lot today, and in the following week, when we’re expected to comment on the others’ posts & link to them.
So, if you’d like to eavesdrop on my personal activities, fly to http://ra.tapor.ualberta.ca/~dayofdh2010/thomascrombez/
