[Thread] I've been inspired by a couple things this week to share a piece of my current book project on the Janowska concentration camp outside of Lviv, Ukraine.

In particular, it deals with these two photos (but I will come back to them.)
First was the piece by @SarahEBond and @TheTattooedProf on the value of public outreach. Building off that, not enough of us share the results of our research at stages prior to publication...even though it can still be fascinating.…
Second, I was also inspired by the overwhelming response to @McKayMSmith's thread on the Höcker album which seems to show that many people are interested in the complex lives of #Holocaust perpetrators.…

If you are interested in the postcolonial digital heritage session for #WAC9Prague I mentioned earlier this week, please check out the attached images and the following text thread with the info on the session. Submissions due very soon! #digiarch #dh #archaeology Flyer for session
Please note that your submission to the session doesn't mean you *must* attend the conference or are financially committing to it, but it does signal your willingness to come & helps us meet our minimum required participants as a proposed session. We will submit it on the 16th.
The image above shows a foreshortened version of the abstract that I created so it would fit on the flyer, but here I will tweet the full abstract and the list of suggested prompts for submissions.

#OTD #OnThisDay from Himmler's Appt Book, June 8, 1941: Himmler arrived at the office this Sunday morning and had an intriguing meeting with SS-Obersturmbannführer Bender at 1145.
Bender was the Superior SS- and Police Judge on Himmler's staff. Himmler in particular was interested in a penal unit of the SS-Totenkopf Division.
This had been established as a punishment unit by Theodor Eicke the first Commander of the concentration camps to avoid incarcerating them in the camps themselves.

1/ Thread sobre a entrada do Brasil na #OCDE (@OECD), assunto do dia hoje após a reunião Trump-Bolsonaro, sob uma ótica não puramente econômica.
2/ Ponto central: a adesão da OCDE não se limita a questões como segurança jurídica, melhoria do ambiente de negócios e liberalização comercial e financeira. A #OCDE tem instrumentos sobre desenvolvimento sustentável e direitos humanos, que também exigem alinhamento.

[Thread] PLEASE read and consider. This is important! An academic organization, the Society for Classical Studies @scsclassics, has just censured a fantastic scholar for standing up to racist and white supremacist speech at a conference. Let's talk about this...b/c we need to.
So, first you need to watch this video (for about 5 minutes) at a session at the recent conference on the Future of Classics (44:56). This is Mary Frances Williams, an independent scholar.
Williams begins with a typical rant about "Western Civilization" which even non-classicists like myself recognize is a deeply problematic conception with overt racist connotations. She begins with "I'll probably offend all of you." Not auspicious.

In addition to the excellent tools from the tweeted picture, there are many #webarchiving tools in development by @WebSciDL and the @LosAlamosNatLab Research Library Prototeam.

Some examples below #eResearchNZ19 #DH #eResearch
Ever wonder which archives have a capture of a given URL? What about for a specific time? Do you want to search multiple #webarchives at once?

The Memento TimeTravel service run by @LosAlamosNatLab uses the #Memento protocol for just that:

From your own machine, MemGator, by @ibnesayeed and @machawk1, also allows one to search across #webarchives using the #Memento protocol.……

Now at #AHA19 #s115 #HHaiti on "Saint-Domingue and Disciplinary (Dis)Loyalties: Literature and History" with @Soccerpolitics, @JohnGarrigus, Julia Prest, Yvonne Fabella, and Logan Connors. Here's the theater database @soccerpolitics just mentioned:
#AHA19 #s115 #HHaiti

@Soccerpolitics starts with a broad question, "What is it that we know about Saint-Domingue? What do we still need to know?"

@JohnGarrigus comments on how much MORE there is at the AHA on Saint-Domingue / Haitian Revolution than in the 1980s.
#AHA19 #s115 #HHaiti

@JohnGarrigus - more people are recognizing the importance of Saint-Domingue, the plantation machine. (PS, Garrigus and Trevor Burnard co-wrote a book by that name comparing Saint-Domingue and Jamaica.)

Thinking about how to explain #publichistory and #digitalhistory scholarship to colleagues on academic #tenure and promotion committees, especially those who are used to sole-authored books as the gold standard #dh #digitalhumanities 1/15
The core of the work is familiar: conceptualization, research, and writing (even if the ultimate presentation is not in the form of prose). The work is original and interpretive, just like traditional monographic scholarship. 2/15
But #publichistory’s attention to #sharedauthority means that the work is developed in cooperation with the public, a process that sometimes provokes conflict and controversy that the scholar has to manage. Sometimes great potential projects can’t come to fruition. 3/15
