This from a Humanist post (22.448) this morning about a project coordinated by our friends at University of Alberta in Canada (where I visited in November).
On March 18th, 2009, digital humanists from around the world are planning to collectively document their day, and we are looking for interested participants!
A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (ADLDH) is a community project that will bring together digital humanists to document what they do on one day, March 18th. It is an autoethnography project by digital humanists about the digital humanities. 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 online.
To participate, please complete the application form by January 30th.
Apply yourself or encourage your colleagues and students to join in.
We will accept reasonable applications that provide different perspectives on what it is to do computing in the humanities. We are looking for a diversity of participants from different regions, backgrounds, roles, and disciplinary perspectives.
