Digital Humanities & more

Are you as excited as I am about Zotero’s latest release? Version 1.5 is now available. What’s most exciting about this is that the next time I do a Zotero workshop I won’t have to preface every statement with “when they release version 1.5…” The possibilities of the web application are particularly exciting to me (and as soon as I finish this post, I’ll be exploring the possibilities).

Additionally, I felt this rundown of Digital Humanities, especially the section on OpenAccess initiatives, was helpful in summarizing the state of the field. Do you find the momentum for this building at other campuses like it is here at UCIrvine?

Earlier this month I attended UCLA’s Mellon Seminar in Digital Humanities. Rather than braving the freeways and heading to Los Angeles, I attended Tara McPherson’s lecture Second Life. The technical difficulties of the SL world made it difficult for me to get as much out of the lecture as I would’ve liked, but it still offered a good entree to Vectors Journal and the efforts of those who are on the forefront of ‘multimodal’ scholarship. Perhaps you’ll join me/us–virtually or in avatar form–for the next lecture on March 9th.
