Digital Humanities 2014
The Digital Humanities Conference is held annually by the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations. The 2014 conference was held in Lausanne, Switzerland. The DiggingDH team interviewed DH scholars about their use of social networks and how others have influenced their opinions about digital humanities.
This first observation of the INKE team took place at their annual conference, which was held in Havana, Cuba. Over the next couple of years, members of this team will be interviewed about their affiliation and work for the INKE project. There will also be site visits to the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab at the University of Victoria to compare the work of a project that extends across Canada and beyond to one that works from a specific geographical location.
The first full site visit was the University College London Digital Humanities Center. This center exists only as a virtual reality (there is no physical location) but members of the center are mainly concentrated in UCL’s Information Studies Department.

This lab is Carleton University’s first digital humanities research center. Headed by Dr. Brian Greenspan, the foci of the lab are digital text and narrative, game studies, locative media, digital theatre, film, and new media cultures. The DiggingDH team made an introductory visit to the Lab in January 2013 and conducted a focus group with 5 of the graduate students there. Follow up visits will include a comprehensive observation and interviews with other lab members.
Sherman Center for Digital Scholarship, McMaster University
The Sherman Center is a newly developed area devoted to digital projects that can be found in the bottom of the Mills Memorial Library. The space here is used for students and faculty with digital ideas, problems, or assignments to come and work and have the benefit of a group of librarians who have knowledge about how to introduce digital elements to this work. The observation of this centre will take place in Fall 2013.
