On this website, I maintain an irregularly-updated research and teaching blog, which includes transcripts of some talks I’ve given, outlines for workshops I’ve led, and posts related to ongoing conversations in the digital humanities field. Feel free to browse these posts, but I would point you to a few which have generated the most conversation in the DH community, both on blogs and in social media:
- My MLA 2015 talk, “‘Many Facts in Small Compass’: Information Literature in C19 Newspapers,” which was widely circulated and was also picked up by tech journalist Alexis Madrigal.
- “On Ignoring Encoding,” on the (gendered) blindness of recent critiques of DH to traditions of scholarly editing and encoding.
- “Mr. Penumbra, Distant Reading, and Cheating at Scholarship,” on the relationship of text mining to archival research.
- “Representing the ‘Known Unknowns’ in Humanities Visualizations,” on the limitations of visualizations in historical work.
- “Mea Culpa: on Conference Tweeting, Politeness, and Community Building”
- “DH, Interdisciplinarity, and Curricular Incursion,” which I am currently revising at “How Not to Teach Digital Humanities for the forthcoming second Debates in the Digital Humanities volume.
