Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


On March 18th, 2009 over 90 people participated in a collaborative documentation project called A Day in the Life of Digital Humanities. The participants blogged what they did that day in the spirit of digital humanities as a form of autoethnography that could help answer the question, "just what do we do?" In this paper we will: Discuss the conception, design and delivery of the project, Discuss the intellectual property paradigm that we adopted to make this project one that produces open documentation for use by other projects, Reflect on the lessons learned about such social research projects and theorize the exercise, and Discuss the second Day of DH project that, building on the strengths of the first, will be run March 18th, 2010.
