How the Digital Humanities uses Slack to support and build a geographically dispersed intellectual community. I was invited to write a piece on the Digital Humanities Slack for the London School of Economics blog (link), and I’m crossposting it here.
I’m a member of the digital humanities (DH) community—we’re builders, tech users, teachers, and thinkers around digital tools exploring literature, history, and other cultural heritage fields (stuff like 3D printing for archaeology, text analysis of historical memes in newspapers, and interfaces that let readers interpret and discuss challenging novels). One of the more recent ways we communicate is via a Digital Humanities Slack. Slack is a digital platform (web or desktop/mobile app) much like a set of chatrooms for a team of people: you can chat in real-time, and create ongoing “channels” (chatrooms) around specific themes or topics (here’s a good overview of what Slack is/how to use it). The DH Slack was created in October 2015 after a suggestion from Ed Summers, and was built by the channel creation and chatting of its members.

Visions of Digital Culture: The Age of Digital Curation. Google Ngram Viewer. Debates in the Digital Humanities. The book, in fact, went through three distinct stages of peer review, each of which required separate revisions: the first and most innovative process was a semipublic peer-to-peer review, in which contributors commented on one another’s work.
Essays then went through an editor’s review, which was followed finally by a traditional blind review administered by the press. The resulting text reflects the range of issues facing the digital humanities at the present time. It begins with the section “Defining the Digital Humanities,” a subject of perennial discussion within the DH community. Other portions of the book explore the field by moving from theory to critique to practice to teaching, ending with a look toward the future of the digital humanities.
The printed version of Debates in the Digital Humanities is the first iteration of this project; it will be followed by an online, expanded, open-access webtext. Notes 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
