On Friday, March 18th more than 200 digital humanists — scholars, librarians, administrators, and others — all around the world documented what they do over the course of a day. It's an annual project called Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities. The goal is to help clarify in concrete terms what, exactly, it means to be a digital humanist.
You can follow along in a few different ways.
- You can read the latest blog posts from all Day of DH contributors.
- You can browse the list of all participants and read their individual blogs.
- You can watch people tweet about their day using the #dayofdh hashtag.
Wondering what digital humanities is? So is everyone else! Check out this list of definitions from Day of DH contributors.
