Tooling Up for Digital Humanities

Tooling Up for Digital Humanities
Welcome to Humanities 3.0: Tooling Up for Digital Humanities. This web site is designed to be a starting place, an entryway for scholars interested in beginning to explore the possibilities for digital tools, programs, and methods to empower and enhance their scholarship in the humanities. These essays and links are only a brief glimpse into the vast field of potential in the digital humanities, but we hope that they point outward to the field’s many possibilities. Please join us for our accompanying weekly workshop series being offered at Stanford during the spring of 2011. In the coming weeks, we will be adding essays about spatial analysis, databases, visualization, and pedagogy. We hope you will help us in this endeavor by commenting on and making suggestions for improvements in these introductory essays.

ProfHacker Many of us have favorite tools that suit our workflows well, helping us accomplish our tasks and keep track of needed bits of information. Below you’ll find a list of applications, services, and utilities that I use almost daily. Workflow. William J Turkel If you are just getting started with online research, there are some things that are handy to know, and a few tools you might like to set up for yourself. Analog and digital. When I talk to my students about the difference between analog and digital representations, I use the example of two clocks. The first is the kind that has hour and minute hands, and perhaps one for seconds, too.

The Sound of Many Hands Clapping: Teaching the Digital Humanities through Virtual Research Environment (VREs) Abstract At the core of the work done within the digital humanities is a difficult interdisciplinary relationship between the at times divergent cognate fields of computer science and the humanities. This paper will explore some of the characteristics of the digital humanities and examine some of its hard interdisciplinarity relationships. It is the contention of the author that one of the central epistemological challenges within the field is to empower students to successfully manage the thorny interdisciplinary relationship intrinsic to technology and the humanities. Without understanding and managing this relationship, there is a danger that student projects lapse into exceedingly reductive pragmatism or overly theorised clumsiness.

Digital History: A Guide to Gathering, Preserving, and Presenting the Past on the Web This book provides a plainspoken and thorough introduction to the web for historians—teachers and students, archivists and museum curators, professors as well as amateur enthusiasts—who wish to produce online historical work, or to build upon and improve the projects they have already started in this important new medium. It begins with an overview of the different genres of history websites, surveying a range of digital history work that has been created since the beginning of the web. The book then takes the reader step-by-step through planning a project, understanding the technologies involved and how to choose the appropriate ones, designing a site that is both easy-to-use and scholarly, digitizing materials in a way that makes them web-friendly while preserving their historical integrity, and how to reach and respond to an intended audience effectively. On this website, we present a free online version of the text. , Barnes and Noble, or U. of Penn. Press.

Towards a Rationale of Audio-Text Bauman 1975 Bauman, R. "Verbal Art as Performance." In American Anthropologist, New Series, 77, no. 2 (June 1975): 290-311. Bernstein 2011 Bernstein, C. La organización de su biblioteca personal de investigación y compilación de bibliografías: Yo era un refusenik EndNote, pero ahora soy un converso Mendeley A key aspect of scholarship is how you create a personal research library, find and access your sources when needed, and cite them accurately and comprehensively. Patrick Dunleavy explains how the (relatively new) software Mendeley has transformed his previous time-consuming practice in just a few days, and solved numerous other problems of accessing literature and sources wherever he is. Mendeley can offer all academics and PhDs massive productivity gains. Until a few days ago the way I organized my research library was a bit chaotic, and doing references and bibliographies was always a huge chore that often took days at a time. Essentially I had hundreds and hundreds of PDFs, extracts from blogs and web pages, Word documents and presentations swilling around my hard drive.

The Future of Archives in a Digital Age Scholarship and teaching in the humanities are undergoing a seismic shift, from a culture once based almost entirely on in-person and printed exchange to one reliant on a combination of traditional communications and digital technologies. It is a time of excitement for many and of skepticism for others. What does it mean that for many the most used "libraries" have become "digital"? What are the implications for the development of knowledge at a time when vast amounts of data have not been made available in digital formats?

And as part of this, we have started teaching our very first Digital Humanities subject in the faculty; a lot of fun and somewhat experimental. There are 5 of us teaching it (and about 20 PhD students); and all the instructors have many years teaching, research, and computing experience (and ways of understanding and applying computing to teaching and research problems). The aims of the course is as follows (and we have put together our syllabus from a number of excellent sources and thanks to University of Victoria in Canada and especially Brett Hirsch of UWA for blazing a path for us).
