I’m finally back from all of my travels, and staying put for a whole four weeks or so. Because I had no internet access where I was staying either at Stanford or in Ireland, I haven’t been able to update like I’d hoped to, and as you can imagine I have quite a bit of blogging backlog between covering and responding to DH2011, as well as giving a multi-part rundown of the workshops I’ve attended. Of course, soaking up all of this digital humanities action has also given me a lot of ideas for things I’d like to address here.
I’ll be making my notes into something readable for the rest of you in the near future. I’ve got quite a few to go through, so if you have any requests for what you’re curious about or would like me to address first, do let me know in the comments!
Hello blog readers-
I’m leaving for DH2011 at Stanford tomorrow. It looks like it will be a great half-week: I’m leaving early to attend two workshops over the weekend (Information Visualization for Literary History, and Network and Topical Analysis for the Humanities). There are amazing panels every day that I wish I had three of myself to send to cover them all. The keynote speakers are really something to look forward to. And most of all, it will be wonderful to be around so many people from my small field, with a great community and energy, and to get a chance to meet them in person.
I’ll be trying to keep up with blogging every day – I am not a live blogger and I don’t like to post notes without context. So plan on receiving a series of posts from me that give you a rundown of each day of the conference, reflections, or just pictures of any large scary bird or plant I come across. I will keep you updated.
Of course I will also be on Twitter, the most convenient way of broadcasting thoughts since passing notes in middle school. If you’re not already following me, I’m at @mdesjardin. And the hashtag is #dh2011.
See you at Stanford!
