Dork short #2

I would like to introduce Digital Humanities Now, a weekly publication that distributes news and work of interest to digital humanities folks in research, education, libraries and archives, and cultural heritage organizations. We rely on volunteers to review the posts that we aggregate from nearly 700 RSS feeds, as well as look through their own networks, to nominate pieces for broader distribution. I can share a bit about how we work and how we are helping other communities create their own curated publications.

About joanftroyano

I'm currently directing the PressForward project at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. I run the experimental publications Digital Humanities Now and the Journal of Digital Humanities, research new methods and best practices for surfacing scholarship from the open web, oversee the development of a WordPress plugin to facilitate aggregation and curation of gray literature, and assist others with similar projects. I'm also an American historian interested in visual culture, public understandings of the past, and public history.
