Digital Humanities Caucus

Want to get started on a digital American studies project?

We can think your idea through with you, suggest useful tools and resources, and give you some suggestions about where you might go next.

What is a digital project? Our definition is broad, and we’ll do our best to help you accomplish whatever you’re imagining. Some popular types of projects include maps, data visualizations, text analysis projects, and experiments in scholarly publishing and pedagogy.

We think American studies scholars have the potential to undertake transformative scholarship in the digital humanities field, and we’re offering these consultations in the hopes of fostering some of this work.

To request a meeting, please give us some information about yourself and your project: https://dhatasa2015.wordpress.com/register-for-a-consultation/.

(If you would like to be a consultant on digital projects and are planning to attend ASA 2015 in Toronto, please register here: https://dhatasa2015.wordpress.com/volunteer-to-consult/ !)

Organized by Tami Albin, Anne Cong-Huyen, Jennifer Guiliano, David Kim, Heidi Knoblauch, Miriam Posner, and Lauren Tilton, with support from the Association for Computers and the Humanities and the Programming Historian.

Call for Presenters: Digital Shorts at the 2014 ASA

The Digital Humanities Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks ASA conference attendees to participate in a session entitled Digital Shorts: The Fun and the Fury. The session will consist of “lightning talks” in which participants describe digital projects in 3-5 minute presentations, receive community feedback, and discuss issues raised by the talks.

These presentations may address current projects, developing ideas and project proposals, or activities related to digital humanities work such as publishing and teaching. Contexts for projects presented in this session can include academic research, public history and museums work, and archival and library work. We especially encourage presentations that address the conference theme. Defined by the conference organizers as a concept “that is intrinsically organizing and disorganizing,” which “call[s] attention to the melee, the necessary turbulence of collaborative undertakings, the joys of thinking that place us beside ourselves and one another,” the fun and the fury seems inherent to much digital humanities work.

There is no need to write a mini-paper or formal presentation to participate. Speaking from slides, a website, or memory are all encouraged. We will have a computer/projector in the room with PowerPoint loaded and live Internet access available.

Digital Shorts will take place Friday, November 7 from 8:00 am to 9:45 am at the ASA annual meeting at the Westin Bonaventure, Level 1, Beaudry A (L1).

To Sign Up: Please email a brief abstract of your intended lightning presentation (250 words maximum), your name, and affiliation to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). We will also accept additional presentations at the session, time permitting.

Important Note: This is informal, so you can (and should!) make a presentation even if your name appears elsewhere on the ASA program.
