This editorial project was a real pleasure to pull together, and we at @umd_AADHum hope that others enjoy these projects and reviews as much as we do! There is such a beautiful story here about the deep diversity of #digitalhumanities work committed to the study of Black life +
As we discuss in our #ReviewsinDH editorial note, this issue is committed to highlighting the work of contemporary "thinker-makers" doing the work of Black art, Black study, Black recovery, and Black speculation— a natural extension of @umd_AADHum's operational perspective + Text: Our hybrid practices ...
Black intellectual work has *always* been distributed across the arts and humanities. #BlackDH roots itself in the deeply multimodal & multivariate approaches that characterize Black thought. Digital arts, digital humanities, digital studies, digital-x can all equal Black Study + Text: Thinking about how we...

Its been 2 years now since I began using Roam regularly... quite remarkable frankly. #roam #TFT
My PKM journey has been one of significant pedagogical trials and tribulations. I detailed much of it here: roambrain.com/roaming-in-the…
The TL:DR - it began as a search for a single tool to manage my pedagogical development as a college instructor and the curriculum I was developing for the 6 courses that I taught.

Humanities friends, stop using Google Maps screenshots in your presentations! Thanks to Technology™ it's easy and free to make maps from scratch that look professional (or at least professional enough), even with my level of extremely limited technical skills. A tutorial thread!
Disclaimer: I’m not a cartographer, this probably isn’t best practice in many ways, but IT’S EASY and that’s my main priority. Also, all of my screenshots have hideous hand-drawn arrows on them, I appreciate the irony that this is about making images look more professional.
Step one: download QGIS. It’s a big programme and it might take a while, but it’s open source and free forever. You can find the latest versions at qgis.org/en/site/foruse…. It doesn’t matter which version, since we’re just going to use super basic features.

Ein #Impulsvortrag zum Thema #Digitalisierung, ursprünglich gehalten im Rahmen der Road to #Hochschulvision, einer Reihe von Werkstattgesprächen der Fachschaften der Fakultät 09 (Geschichts- und #Kunstwissenschaften) der #LMUMünchen – als #Thread. (0/26)
Disclaimer: Was folgt, richtet sich an ein geisteswissenschaftliches Publikum und ist stark geprägt durch meine persönlichen Erfahrungen in den #DigitalHumanities, speziell in der digitalen #Musikwissenschaft, wo ich seit 2015 arbeite. (1/26)
Der Begriff #Digitalisierung ist abgeleitet vom lateinischen Wort „digitus“ = „Finger“, vgl. etwa dwds.de/wb/digital .
Finger kann man zur Darstellung von Information nutzen. Mit einem Finger kann ich bereits zwei Zustände unterscheiden: ☝️ = 1, ✊ = 0. (2/26)

Ihr erinnert Euch? Vor gefühlter Ewigkeit, also am Dienstag, habe ich über Universitäten als Institutionen gesprochen, die im Kern mittelalterlich seien. Universitäten als Communitates also. Das muss man bedenken, wenn man über ~akademische Selbstgestaltung~ spricht. 1/
Die kleinste Einheit an einer Universität ist danach ein Kollegium. Das besteht, minimal, aus Doktor:in und zwei Studierenden: Im Mittelpunkt von Universität steht also die Lehre. Ihr wundert Euch vllt.: Was ist mit den Professor:innen? Den Heerscharen an Lehrbeauftragten? 2/
Professor:innen sind Doktor:innen, mit einer spezifischen Funktion in der nächstgrößeren Struktureinheit, der Fakultät, der ~Schule~. Manche Fakultäten haben die Möglichkeit, ihrer Doktor:innen Lehrstühle einzurichten. Sie bestimmen gemeinsam die Entwicklung ihrer Schule. 3/

Was ist #DigitalHerrnhut? Das wird jetzt etwas umfassender, denn in der Tat stelle ich schon einige Jahre Fragen, immer in verschiedener Intensität, an diese kulturell äußerst bedeutungsvolle Gemeinschaft der #HerrnhuterBürdergemeine. 1/
Die Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine ist eine Glaubensgemeinschaft, die sich am Anfang des 18. Jh. aus verschiedenen Wurzeln heraus in Ostsachen institutionalisiert. Sie stellt Prinzipien des Zusammenlebens zentral, die zu dieser Zeit als sozialrevolutionär gelten dürfen. 2/ Herrnhut. vom Hutberg aus gesehen
Das sind in loser Folge: Vor Gott sind alle Menschen gleich. Nach der "Tropenidee" ist es dabei zunächst erst einmal nicht vorrangig, welche:r Gott das sei (im Mittelpunkt der Gemeinschaft steht aber Jesus Christus, wir reden von einer protestanischen Gemeinschaft). 3/

Recently I was asked to write a thing for @PublicBooks, on teaching, learning, and ‘doing’ #digitalhumanities in the pandemic.

I ended up with a #BlackDH essay about ontologies of digital mediation in the anthropocene—which is a fancy way of saying that +
publicbooks.org/like-sands-thr…
For @PublicBooks I wrote about new and old forms of loss, of how remembering and forgetting are so tightly tied to experiences of space, to our experiences of natural and built environments. Black Americans have always had a fundamentally multidimensional relationship to space +
In "Black Haunts in the Anthropocene" I contemplate Black multidimensionality as an experience of hybrid temporality, so deep historical embeddness that requires us to constantly remix the present. Everything has a groove, but nothing quite fits together. blackhaunts.mp285.com

Excited for the opportunity to witness this deeply grounded and pathseeking #digitalhumanities collab between MITH, @umd_amst, and some of the keepers of Lakeland’s legacy.

This is the kind of project that illuminates possibilities for #BlackDH and community generated research.
As if this weren’t enough, you can follow this convo with a dive into some of the larger structural matters underlying Lakeland’s historical and contemporary claims. Which is to say, you should catch this convo on reparations and anti-Black racism...
The program is opening with Ms. Violetta Sharp, who is fifth generation Lakeland. She describes Lakeland as a vacation community founded in the nineteenth century, sited in what eventually became the larger College Park area. Black families were attracted to the area + work opps

Recently, @DumbartonOaks and @JSTOR Labs released the Plant Humanities Lab (lab.plant-humanities.org). We're all eager to share it in loving detail, so here's a thread doing just that. #planthumanities #digitalhumanities #environmentalhumanities 1/x
The study of plants' influence on human societies has two interesting qualities that drove the design of this site. First, it is inherently interdisciplinary, stretching from the arts through the humanities deep into the sciences. 2/x
At the workshop that was the inspiration for this project (vimeo.com/254555201), Peter Crane of @oak_spring said, "Interdisciplinarity comes most naturally when you've got a focus: a plant, a place, something concrete that people can bring different perspectives to." 3/x

I’ve shared a collection of 4 @observablehq notebooks about drawing and animating 'waterlines'—an old technique for showing water in maps—in JavaScript

Old + new #dataviz #maps mash-up: a thread

observablehq.com/collection/@ol…
Waterlines are a beautiful feature of western 19th Century maps – ripples or waves radiating out from the coastline

maps.nls.uk/view/101169311

gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv…
Though they aren’t the only way to draw water – water appears as *so many* different kinds of graphics in maps of the past

If you ever wonder, "What's the big deal? Why can't we all be cyborgs? #DonnaHaraway told us we could." Or if you are currently using "cyborg" as metaphor in your poem, monograph, short story, novel. This text message is for you. From an actual cyborg. Screenshot of message. I am texting my prosthetist the follo
Note the way we cyborgs have to take on other/autre self in order to describe ourselves to clinicians. "The other leg" instead of "my leg." It's like putting on medical model's calm, cool affect. Or risk not being believed.
It would be super helpful if leaders/scholars in #DigitalHumanities and #AcademicTwitter would more often/always make this distinction btw "cyborg" as metaphor and "cyborg" as disabled person actually going thru cyborg phenomenology.

12 Facts about Disabled Poet, Activist & Theorist Josephine Miles That You Probably Don't Know.

1. First woman to receive tenure at the Department of English @UCBerkeley . This was in 1947. Note: Not first disabled woman. First woman. Period.
2. "In the 1930s, as a graduate student at Berkeley, she completed her first distant reading project: an analysis of the adjectives favored by Romantic poets." Thus she invented digital humanities before #digitalhumanities

ANNOUNCEMENT:

The 10 videos from the Wonder Women workshop are now live! Click this playlist to begin! 🥳

youtube.com/playlist?list=… via @YouTube

We're so looking forward to your comments, thoughts and questions (register at wonderwomenworkshop.wordpress.com for the live Q&A on Friday!)
First up is our keynote address by the wonderful @EmmaButcher_, Lecturer in Literature and Cultural Heritage @edgehill. In this paper, she argues that young girl writers, soldiers and witnesses to war are due more consideration in military history:
@EmmaButcher_ @edgehill Let's head over to the first of our three panels - 'Gender and Sexuality'. What is a ‘military’ body, or way of dressing or acting or cutting your hair? If 'warriors' are usually stereotypically masculine, how do warrior women, queer women or gender non-conforming women fit in?

»The Fold: Rethinking Interactivity in Data Visualization« by @vik_bru @markiaaan @nrchtct just got published in @DHQuarterly. It transfers Deleuze’s notion of the fold to #dataviz and derives qualities for humanistic visualization design & critique: digitalhumanities.org/dhq/vol/14/3/0… (1/5)
Having worked with the concept of monads in visualization before, we really appreciate the depth (and illustrative quality) of Deleuze's »The Fold«. Put briefly, it’s a theory of multiplicity and difference, establishing the fold as the smallest building block of the world. (2/5) Image
We extend this line of thought to digital information spaces and suggest the fold as a novel lens on knowledge systems and their representation. The associated operations—explication, implication, and complication—open up an evocative design and research vocabulary. (3/5) Image
