Omeka Folks

Would those working on or developing Omeka projects be interested in collaborating post-THATCamp on a joint wiki or doc?  My idea is creating a resource for those interested in Omeka in which we can list our sites, share how we built the features, and also detail lessons we’ve learned from the process.  Contact me if interested either here or at moc.l1472187186iamg@1472187186030re1472187186krapc1472187186 Also thank you THATCamp organizers for a very rewarding experience this weekend!

Instructions for connecting Macs to the Podium Displays

It appears that there have been a couple of issues in connecting Apple computers to display from the podiums. There a a few simple steps to follow, which should enable you to display your desktop through the projector:

  • Connect your laptop to the VGA cable via dongle (if you need a dongle, let a volunteer or organizer know)
  • On your computer go to System preferences
  • Click on Displays
  • Select Detect Displays

This should find the display and give you options about how you want your desktop to display (through the projector alone or mirroring your desktop through the projector).

If you have any problems let a volunteer or organizer know and we will try to get it resolved as quickly as possible.

Thanks

Last minute session proposal – Disruption Theory

I’m interested in gathering a group of people to talk through some implications of disruption theory (developed by Clayton Christensen) on the humanities, and for academic, library, and museum institutions.

I proposed a similar session at THATCamp Museum 2012 and it was well received, so I figured why not again?

Last minute session proposal: Approaches to text mining

I’m interested in bringing together people who are thinking about different approaches to text mining. I think it would be helpful for people to discuss different workflows–from cleaning texts, creating databases, mining the texts, and visualizing the data. I have some experience in text mining, but I think it would be useful to hear the pros and cons of different methodologies. What types of questions are people asking? What are the main challenges people have faced? What types of skills are people trying to learn?

Session Proposal: Developing DH at the undergraduate level

I would like to propose a subject on incorporating more undergraduate students into the process of DH. I would like to propose a session in which we discuss ways of getting digital scholarship skills and methodologies in the the skill sets of undergraduate students. What are some basic competences that these studies must have? What tools and techniques are worth teaching? As well as other questions could be discussed.

Visualization and Digital Archives

I would like to discuss visualization tools for qualitative content, such as concept maps and other platforms allowing non-linear navigation, especially tools allowing to play with the visual structure of the content and helping picture how concepts and data are linked together. CMap is interesting but quite limited in the way it displays the content (linked media and other maps). I am also affiliated with a research project working on digitizing the archive of a theater company, and I would be interested in learning more about Omeka + also about Wikidot for teaching.

Session Proposal: Occupy Wall Street Walking Tour: Embodying a Compassionate Pedagogy for the Digital Humanities

I would like to propose a grab bag session that would take us off-site and into the streets of New York City to cultivate compassion in the digital humanities.  This session would be offered in the 4:45 time slot at the end of the day to allow sufficient time for traveling and researching off-site. If there is sufficient interest, we may choose to collaborate on a blog or other digital publication with the data that we collect.

Join this session for an off-site walking tour of New York City, with special attention to places and spaces linked to Occupy Wall Street.  Working with contemplative pedagogy for the digital humanities, we will visit and digitally record our responses on this walking tour.  By mindfully mapping our embodied connections to living history, we may begin to imagine a means of cultivating compassionate in our teaching and scholarship in the digital humanities.
