#behindthescenes of both the markup for a digital edition and a timelapse for a digital storytelling project to introduce my research to a group of my peers. I spend a lot of time at this desk, thanks #gradschool. Massive shoutout to @britishlibrary for making available this digitization of Harley MS 2253, one of three extant manuscripts with a surviving copy of King Horn. I couldn’t make any progress on a digital edition without access to the manuscripts, even as a digital facsimile! #phdchat#digitalhumanities

Back from vacation, back on the #workshop circuit.
#nycdhweek registration is open, and I’m excited to be leading an introduction to critical #data methods on Feb. 6. Register now at http://bit.ly/criticaldata
Over the past seven years, I’ve participated in a nontrivial number of #digitalhumanities workshops. Many have taken a tool- or software-first approach, focusing on apparently content-agnostic skills that scholars might then apply to their respective fields of study.
Through my work as an educator and designer, I’ve come to believe that, when we isolate digital skill-building from our work as humanists, we abandon the robust critical training that compels us to attend to historical, ethical, epistemological, and justice-oriented questions. These concerns now fuel my teaching philosophy and undergird my work within and beyond the classroom.
In this workshop, we’ll cover basic concepts in data (like taxonomies and database types) through a lens informed by feminist, critical race, and indigenous theories of information. We’ll collaboratively develop strategies for conducting data-driven research and scaffolding data use in the classroom.
This workshop is designed for humanities faculty and graduate students interested in working intentionally with data, but anyone and everyone is welcome. This event is open to the public.

We’re honored to announce that the @uwmlibraries has received a $50,000 @mellonfdn grant through the University of Nevada Las Vegas for the “LGBTQ+ Audio Archive Mining Project.”
The UWM Libraries house one of the largest collections of historical and contemporary LGBTQ+ materials in Wisconsin and the Midwest, including a rich record of Milwaukee’s LGBTQ+ communities.
The “LGBTQ+ Audio Archive Mining Project” will use machine learning tools and data analysis and visualization to build and process text datasets extracted from a variety of AV materials in our archival collections, including collections of oral histories, local television news and radio broadcasts, and early LGBTQ+ community cable programming.

Have you ever wondered how old photos become digital images? This new video created by Library and Archives Assistant Eslam Al Dawodieh takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the ACOR Library and Archives, demystifying the process. Digitization starts with an archival photo and results in a digital, searchable image. This video features some current and former members of ACOR Archival Team (in order of appearance): Hala Al-Saqqa (2018-2019), Razan Ahmad, Jessica Holland, Samya Khalaf Kafafi, Rachael McGlensey (2019), Eslam Al-Dawodieh. #archives#digitalhumanities#photoarchive#acorjo#archivalmethods#openaccess#archivelife#digitallibrary

we usually have a very clear project setting. currently i run my first @FWF_at funded project under a european umbrella where the main focus is on application of #openinnovation in #digitalhumanities. the more tricky thing is how it is referred 2 in your research community.
Here is another posting for a "Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter/in" / job in Digital Humanities at the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel (Germany). Deadline Jan 31st!

Oculus touch controllers have arrived in the Yale DHLab and the staff are having fun exploring what’s possible.
The Digital Humanities Lab offers individual and group consultations for Yale digital humanities projects at any stage of development, from conceptualization through implementation. Staff address questions related to best practices, data management, corpus creation, visualizations, digital tools, and more.

I assume there are some #digitalhumanities folks out there who've done this kind of work... https://twitter.com/janagrc/status/1218538317119094784 …

Her #entrepreneurial mindset is shines through her work & research!
“#Entrepreneurship is all about understanding other people’s problems & blockers [...] Studies show that #art, #literature & #history help entrepreneurs understand other people’s point of view — a critical skill for anyone who is trying to build a client base."

We're thrilled that our large-scale research initiative is helping researchers to delve into the past. We chatted with Italian #TimeMachineAmbassador Dr Antonella Ambrosio (@uninait) about our project 🤩
Two of our new team members deep diving into project planning.
Yvonne Fuchs and Dominic Weber, master students from @unibasel, are working to build suitable digital infrastructure to handle transcripts of non-digitized, handwritten historic sources. Their goal is to foster collaboration between Historians and to contribute to the more efficient use of research outpt, e. g. its broader use in the field of digital humanities. Welcome at the Lab!

With Thinc, the charity I founded in Austria supported by @stadtsalzburg kultur & @land_salzburg Salzburg with Lehen realschule we developed arts education programs with STEAM (science technology arts mathematics or arguably media) to enrich students pedagogical understanding of themselves in the world. By engaging with arts through creative praxis they were able to access broader parts of their humanity that they otherwise may be difficult to reach. Will talents such as @moboid@jorgeluisjuan@tagtoolcrew Mirjam Klebel, particularly girls in these projects were able to explore collaboration, critical engagement, experimentation, cultural understanding and access to new technologies & interdisciplinary art with unusual approaches. Mentorship played a part in giving these girls confidence to experiment across paradigms of art, technology and education with ease. They were girls that wouldn't have necessarily had this kind of mentorship and support. So these workshops contributed to a level playing field, including marginalised groups into arts enrichment programs.

«[La traduzione dal greco e dal latino ha valore] per la formazione di menti aperte, vale a dire di menti né scettiche né dogmatiche. E tutto questo nella consapevolezza che il prezzo della libertà è l’eterna vigilanza – su quello che pensiamo noi e su quello che dicono gli altri. Menti aperte: primo ed irrinunciabile presidio di una società aperta […] [La traduzione ha la forza di essere “problema”, infatti] tutta la ricerca, in qualsiasi ambito essa venga praticata (dalla fisica all’interpretazione di un testo o di una traccia storica) consiste in tentativi di soluzione di problemi tramite la creazione di ipotesi da sottoporre ai più severi controlli [...] È esattamente in questo orizzonte che si comprende l’urgente necessità di una didattica che – affinché non si continui a dare risposte a domande non poste – punti sui problemi più che sugli esercizi. Il problema va risolto, l’esercizio va eseguito; [...] il problema forma, l’esercizio addestra; il problema scatena la ricerca, l’esercizio presuppone risultati di ricerche già fatte. Ma qui sta proprio il guaio, perché quelli indicati come problemi nei testi, per esempio, di geometria, di algebra, di chimica o di trigonometria... non sono problemi, sono esercizi. Per cui si dà che non di rado nei nostri licei scientifici l’unica vera attività di ricerca sia consistita, e forse talvolta consista ancora, nella versione di latino».

Bugünün toplumunu anlamak ve yaşadıklarımızı anlamlandırmak için zihin açan ve yol gösteren bir tez çalışması "Çöplerden Semt Analizi" hatta yapılma sebebi bile başlı başına bir toplumsal çalışma çünkü tezin 1970'li yetmişli yıllarda ilk uygulanışı yüz yüze görüşülen insanların hayatları ve tüketimleri hakkında verdikleri yalan bilgiler. Kamusal alanda bugün ki dijital insanın kurgudan oluşan hayatını gerçekten doğru anlamanın yolu toplumun onu görmediği ev yaşamı ve orada tükettikleri.
