Day of Digital Humanities

Hi all….Just wanted to alert you that today is Day of Digital Humanities, when digital humanists around the globe highlight their daily activities on the interwebs. MSU is hosting the event this year, and I’ll be contributing a few posts during the day over on the collaborative blog they have put up. You can also follow along on twitter using the hashtag #DayofDH.

The entire concept is a lot of fun. The idea is to give a glimpse into what digital humanities is and what it looks like on a day-to-day basis by the people who actual do the work. It inspired the incredible project Day of Archaeology, which I have participated in for the past few years. It is always interesting for me to see what people’s days are like, how they do their work, and how they define their jobs. Day of DH is a good opportunity to take peak into other people’s lives.

Since I’m primarily writing, my Day of DH will be focused on just that: how I use digital tools to get my writing done. I’ve messed with my workflow a lot over the past few weeks, so it will be good for me to write some of it out for you, anyway. Hope you enjoy!!
