THATCamp Theory roundups, results, and more!

Thank you, everyone, for an energizing and thought-provoking weekend! Here are some of the follow-ups I’ve seen so far: Mia Zamora’s excellent notes from Saturday Michelle Moravec’s Storify gives a non-attendee’s perspective by showing what a “crazy day on the Twitterverse” we produced when combined with concurrent events like NEASA and THATCamp OHA.

Developing a Common Language across Race Studies and the Digital Humanities

scrabble

I would like to propose a collaborative workshop to develop a common language or vocabulary between scholars of race studies (critical race studies, postcolonial studies), computer scientists and the digital humanists. What are some common terms that we use that we think in different ways? (Modularity comes up as one.) What are some of the …

I am proposing a session that I hope will call upon the collective interest of any members in the humanities whose work intersect with critical questions in science and the history of science in any way. As scholars in the fields of the humanities, including that of history, are turning increasingly to digital tools that …

Latour and his co-authors claim that “monads dissolve the quandary [of describing individuals vs. describing the wholes to which they belong] and redefine the notion of the whole by …

What’s code got to do / got to do with it?

Writing has always been mediated, mostly physically. There are things that can and cannot be done in a cuneiform tablet that differ from that for a scroll, and that for a codex, and that for runes on bark, and that for a printed book, and that for a web page. When we get to the …
