Now a centerNet initiative!

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is a community publication project that answers, "What does a digital humanist do?" in the most direct way: by showing what digital humanists are actually doing.

We have run this project every year for the last three years with support from CIRCA, TAPoR and the University of Alberta Arts Resource Centre. For more information look at the site of each individual iteration:

Alternatively, you may want to see the How_do_you_define_Humanities_Computing_/_Digital_Humanities? which is a list of responses to that question when people register for the Day of DH.

What is this project?

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is a community publication project that brings together digital humanists from around the world to document what they do on one day, March 18th. We have run the project twice so far, in 2009 and 2010. We then weave together the journals of the participants into a dataset that answers the question, “Just what do computing humanists really do?” Participants document their day through photographs and commentary in a blog-like journal. The collection of these journals with links, tags, and comments make up the final work which is published online.
