We're holding our first DH reading group session for 2013 next Friday 1 March at 4pm.
Where: Arts 1.33 / CHE Seminar Room
Here are three things you need to know:
1. It's a DH show and tell.
We haven't seen each other for a while so our first session will be a "Show and Tell". Instead of a reading, you are welcome to share a DH project that has impressed you recently (the 2012 DH Awards nominations list is a great resource to look at), a current project you are working on, a concept for a future project, or an area you would like to learn more about in 2013. James Smith will be joining us (in digital form) via video link from London. He is about to start work on a DH curriculum development project and is also keen to share a concept for a new postdoc project with us.
2. We'll be planning for 2013.
We'll conclude the session by discussing the best way to run the reading group in 2013. Shall we each each 'host' a meeting in 2013 - choosing an article and leading the discussion? I think this would encourage stronger engagement with topics and would allow for a more diverse range of interests to be explored. Interspersed throughout reading sessions we would continue hosting guest speakers and site visits where possible. We are also keen to take advantage of the video link technology in our meeting room to host some international speakers in 2013. We shall also confirm meeting time and date.
3. How we're going to use our blog.
We've created this space to can share links and articles for each week's topic and record interesting outcomes from our discussions. The blog includes summaries of each meeting of 2012 so you can go back and review readings and resources. It's your blog and we would love your contributions. If you would like admin access to write blog posts just send Colin Yeo or Jo Hawkins an email.
