Below is the Prezi and some supplementary content for my Digital Humanities 2013 presentation on Project Hieroglyph.
You can learn more about the Center for Science and the Imagination at our website or by downloading our first Annual Report.
On the origins of Project Hieroglyph: you might want to read Neal Stephenson’s inital shot across the bow, Innovation Starvation, or some of the recent press about the project in Wired UK, CNN, the New York Times and elsewhere. You can also follow a site activity RSS feed here.
I’ll add more notes here based on feedback from the talk and any comments you’d like to leave.
You can follow the center at @imaginationASU on Twitter or on Facebook. I’m @zonal. And of course you should sign up for Project Hieroglyph yourself!
I sign up for my Day of DH 2013 website more or less after said day has already begun. And I have another short article I’ve promised to write tomorrow. Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to sharing some of my work in progress–there is so much to talk about!
I’m very excited to be a part of ACL[x], an experimental conference under the aegis of the American Comparative Literature Association. I’ll try to revise this post later, but for now I wanted to share a copy of my presentation for those who’d like to follow along on their own devices.
If the embedded version below fails you, try this link instead.
There was an interesting discussion of the Stanford Literary Lab’s second pamphlet, authored by Franco Moretti, over at a group academic blog called Magazine Modernisms. I decided to stick my oar in.
I’ll revise this post later. For now, here are the slides for my presentation in PowerPoint:
And a slightly modified PDF (without all the quote fly-ins):
I’ve finally returned to add to this post. I had a great time at Stanford’s Digital Humanities 2011, and the conference once again impressed me: quality work and a truly collaborative atmosphere. I was lucky enough to be on a panel organized by Franco Moretti and starring Zephyr Frank and Rhiannon Lewis. I thought it was a huge success and I was thrilled to see it written up in the Chronicle.
This was my third year at Digital Humanities and for the first time I really felt like part of a community where I had friends to see and news to catch up on. The effect was of course magnified because I was returning to my “home” institution, which I hardly saw in the last three years of grad school after I moved to Phoenix. I really enjoyed hanging out with the Stanford DH crew at the banquet and I even got a photo credit. I’m grateful to Franco for the panel, Matt Jockers and Glen Worthey for organizing the whole shebang, and the English department for very generously supporting my trip after I was technically no longer a student there.
As for my talk, I think I’ll let the slides and linked abstract speak for themselves. If someone is dying for the voice-over, let me know and I’ll try to find some time. For now, onwards and upwards.
That is the rather hubristic automated title my temporary new blog was given by the Day of Digital Humanities folks. Maybe I should change that. In any case, come check it out! I’ll be blogging all day about what exactly it is I do.
