Last week I was grateful to attend the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria in beautiful British Columbia with support from both ZSR and Wake Forest’s Humanities Institute. I took a week-long course in project management, specifically tailored to digital humanities, where projects are often protean and power dynamics among team members are…complicated. Before and after, I also took two 3-hour workshops on metadata for digital humanities (Open Refine FTW!) and large-scale text analysis through the HathiTrust Research Center.
I often digest professional development by articulating what I’ve learned in multiple snippets of 140 characters or less — and at DHSI, where Twitter is a medium of collaborative note-taking, as well as conversation, this was especially true. Below is an embedded collection of select tweets (not all, I promise!) capturing some of my conversations and takeaways from DHSI. I invite you to browse below or to skim the collection on Twitter.
