Digital Humanities: Infrastructure & Sustainability

Digital Humanities -or any new form of digital scholarship- can also bring new technical challenges.  In a 2015 EDUCAUSE article The Digital Humanities Are Alive and Well and Blooming: Now What?, the author raised the question “what about those innovative digital resources that are not quite large enough to be self-sustaining?”  Examples of such (DHs) projects might include: digital archives, online exhibits, digital storytelling sites, wiki or blog sites for presenting research results, companion sites for print publications, etc.  In this session, let’s talk about the infrastructure and sustainability aspects of DHs projects.  Potential leading/discussion points can include: best practices for running popular and stable software tools for DHs, hosting options (local vs cloud) for DHs, funding options for DHs after they “end”, DHs ownership and responsibilities for “finished” projects, etc.

Propose a Session: How To!

Some campers may not see the “Add a New Post” link when they first login to THATcamp. Once you login, you should see the “Dashboard” for WordPress. Unfortunately some people see the normal home page. If so, be sure you are logged in, then  please click this link to access the Dashboard.

Once in the Dashboard, at the top left, click Posts> Add New.

Prepare your post, then in the right sidebar, in the “Secured Categories” area, choose “Proposals” as a Category. (note: you can choose more than one category).

More information on proposing is here.
