1. Digital Humanities Australasia 2014 is just two weeks away!UWA will be hosting the DHA2014 conference from 18-21 March and we're excited to see so many UWA postgrads and academics presenting papers and taking part in panel sessions. Most of the workshops are free - including the one I am helping facilitate - The #Altac track: Strategies to imagine and build alternative academic careers (only 5 tickets left!). Take a look at some of the other workshops here. You still have time be part of the event by presenting work-in-progress in poster form but you need to get in quick. Contact Jenni ASAP on firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. The next meeting of the Digital Antipodes will be held 2-3pm on Friday 11 April (Arts 1.33)You won’t want to miss this one. We’ll be discussing major themes and ideas from DHA2014. What were the main ideas that emerged? What do they mean in the context of our own research?
3. We’re looking for a new coordinator for the Digital Antipodes!I’ll be overseas from mid April until September 2014 so we're seeking a volunteer to facilitate meetings over the next 6 months. It’s a great opportunity to get more involved in the DH community and it’s not too time consuming. You’d simply need to liaise with the group to choose a journal article, blog post or online portal to discuss at each monthly meeting, book a room and dispatch an email. The role has greatly enriched my understanding of the DH landscape and I highly recommend it. Send me an email if you are interested.
