Day of DH 2012

Day of DH 2012 logoI participated in Day of DH 2012. This is the second year I’ve participated in this international, collaborative journaling of what DHer’s actually DO all day. Today wasn’t a very “digital” kind of day for me. In fact, the majority of the day was spent on meetings and activities tangentially related to digital humanities. So, I pitched my Day of DH posts as testament to the array of topics I end up speaking to as a specialist in media more generally. Eventually, I want to compile a survey of my experiences with all the often unanticipated practical/logistical issues that arise when a smaller, liberal arts college decides to get into digital humanities. For now, though, I’m pleased to have contributed to the Day of DH project again and I hope my posts prove useful in some way.
