Each week, a member of the JITP Editorial Collective assembles and shares the news items, ongoing discussions, and upcoming events of interest to us (and hopefully you). This week’s installment is edited by Amanda Starling Gould.
How are fellow DHers spending the summer? #SummerOfCode #SummerDHschools #SummerDHprojects
This week’s roundup is meant not only to share digital research and pedagogy project plans but also to inspire you to begin your own. You’ll find a list of exciting projects by Digital Humanities pros such as Alex Gil, Mark Sample, Jesse Stommel, and Duke University’s Wired! Lab. You’ll also find a list of resources for kick-starting your own project or DH-related summer learning goal.
At JITP, we champion the production and delivery of scholarly communication using interactive and multimedia formats. To embrace this in a playful, but hopefully too also effective manner, this week’s RoundUp turns to Twitter. Below you’ll find tweets, viewable on most browsers with fully-interactive features that allow you to favorite, retweet, and reply, that bring you into the conversation and encourage you to engage.
What are you up to this summer, DHers?

One of the projects of my digital humanities is to think through and champion the humane ways we teach and learn online. — Jesse Stommel (@Jessifer) May 10, 2015
Jesse is also working on a 20,000-person Shakespeare MOOC and thinking about how a MOOC itself might be a form of scholarship.
He’s talking about this grant: http://www.neh.gov/divisions/odh/grant-news/announcing-17-digital-humanities-start-grant-awards-march-2015.
To my delight, my call for Summer DH plans spread a bit farther than I expected. Not all of the responses could be recorded here. To see the full list – which I’ll repopulate as tweets come in – see the Storify here: https://storify.com/stargould/twitter-roundup-for-jitp.
