… 18:00 – 19:30 – internal discussion on developments within the academies and their DH groups – not to be published …
After some internal discussion with the general secretary of the Union of the Academies, we now listen to a semi-public presentation on tools for digital scholarly editing by Thomas Burch from the Trier Center for Digital Humanities.
Who of my dearest peers is participating in the Day of DH this year?
Todays business: Meeting of the “Working Group Digital Research” within the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities at the Saxon Academy of Sciences at Leipzig.
Starts today 14:00, ends tomorrow, exact end time depends, due to the railway strike, on the “Ersatzfahrplan“.
My last day of DH was April, 8th, 2014. What has changed since then? Uhm, nothing much, I would say …
- same job: still some sort of general manager for the CCeH with 50% paid by the Academy of Science of North-Rhine-Westfalia to care for the Digital Humanities aspects of some of their projects
- same house, same address, no new kids
- some projects have ended, some are ongoing, some new projects have started or are about to start
- visited some conferences, met many people, did some teaching, read some texts, wrote some texts; hope I learned something in the past twelve months
… business as usual, change will come …
