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). Our first installment is edited by Sarah Ruth Jacobs.
This was a diverse week for digital humanists, with events and online discussion in subject areas including creative nonfiction and medical history.
The American Academy of Arts and Sciences and Emory University held a “Teaching and the Digital Humanities” event on April 2. William G. Thomas advocated that students do “more work on the open web, not contained in closed CMSes,” Anne Cong-Huyen discussed how Whittier College takes the “ethos of digital humanities into all classrooms across campus,” and Stephen Nichols raised the “problem of [assessing] multimodal projects as [an] issue blocking [the] wider adoption of digital pedagogy.”
The American Library Association and the Digital Humanities Collective held a panel on “A Day in the Life of a Digital Humanities Librarian” at Michigan State.
Free registration opened for the Digital Material Conference (May 21-22, 2015 at the National University of Ireland, Galway), which will “consider the intersections of digital and material cultures in the humanities” and feature talks by Matthew G. Kirschenbaum and Jerome McGann.
A workshop entitled “Images and Texts in Medical History” and sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Library of Medicine, Virginia Tech, and the Wellcome Library will take place in April of 2016, and application instructions for potential participants will be posted in June of 2015.
