Day of DH 2013

Mar 052013

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is an open community publication project that will bring together scholars interested in the digital humanities from around the world to document what they do on one day.  This year, Day of DH will take place on April 8th. The goal of the project is to create a web site that weaves together a picture of the participant’s activities on the day which answers the question, “Just what do digital humanists really do?” Participants  document their day through photographs and text, all of which is published on a community online platform (which, for this year, lives at Both during and after the day, people are encouraged to read and comment on their fellow participant’s posts.  Eventually, all the data will be grouped together, undergo some light semantic editing, and released for others to study. We hope that, beyond the original online publication, the raw data will be of use to those interested in further visualization or digital community ethnographic research.

Anyone who considers themselves as being part of the Digital Humanities community (by any definition) is invited to participate, write, share, and comment:

Reviewers per la rivista Umanistica Digitale. Richiesta di partecipazione

 Commenti disabilitati su Reviewers per la rivista Umanistica Digitale. Richiesta di partecipazione
Gen 092013

Come annunciato l’Associazione sta per avviare la pubblicazione di una rivista scientifica elettronica e Open Access.

La testata si intitolerà Umanistica Digitale ed è nostra intenzione renderla il principale e più autorevole luogo di dibattito e riflessione sulle Digital Humanities in Italia oltre che una importante vetrina internazionale del notevole livello della ricerca italiana nel nostro campo.

Un aspetto fondamentale per il raggiungimento di questi obiettivi, oltre che per l’accreditamento della rivista ai fini delle procedure di valutazione, è costituito dall’adozione di una rigorosa prassi di selezione delle pubblicazioni basata sulla peer review. Chiediamo dunque a tutti i soci e in generale a tutta la comunità degli studi delle DH di partecipare a questo progetto proponendosi come membri del comitato dei reviewers.

Tutti coloro che intendono proporsi direttamente o segnalare eventuali candidati sono invitati ad inviare (o sollecitare l’invio) di un breve CV, dove siano indicati chiaramente gli ambiti di interesse scientifico, in modo da consentire alla redazione una consapevole assegnazione dei lavori sottoposti per la pubblicazione.

Le candidature e il CV devono essere inviate direttamente all’indirizzo e-mail di Fabio Ciotti, direttore editoriale per la durata del mandato del consiglio direttivo:

Do not go at this game alone“, was the unmistakable advice given to LIBER libraries at the end of the first LIBER workshop on digital preservation in The Hague in 2010. Since then, the euro crisis and budget cuts have only exacerbated the need to seek partnerships in securing long-term access to your digital collections. But with whom can you partner?
