Interviews with Digital Historians & Humanists

I was a participant at the First Digital Workshop held at the Centre for Digital Humanities, University of Nebraska Lincoln in the fall of 2006. I had forgotten that I – and others – had been interviewed for our thoughts on the Digital Humanities: what they were, what they were for, where the field was going, etc. So imagine my surprise when I found the video clips of those interviews today!

My clips are here:

The definition of “digital history” or “digital humanities”

His initial encounters with digital scholarship in the humanities

The atmosphere surrounding or reception of digital scholarship in the academy

Audiences for or community involvement with digital scholarship

The potential for “humanities in the digital age”

It’s a bit odd to watch oneself on video for the first time… I remember I was caught somewhat by surprise, so you can see the little wheels exploding in my head, as I try to sound reasonably intelligent.
