ASA Recap: Digital Humanities

It’s hard to believe that it is already December 2nd—my November went by in a really productive and exciting whirlwind of friends, family, and academic conferences. And it’s not slowing down just yet: this weekend I’m heading to Boston for the New Media in American Literary History Symposium. But before I get to that, I wanted to do a recap of some of the digital humanities work I saw on display at the American Studies Association annual meeting.

I was lucky enough to be a part of one really great panel: the “Digital Humanities Lightning Shorts,” which consisted of 5 minute talks—enforced by someone ringing a decidedly analog bell—highlighting DH projects in various stages of development and implementation. While a few speakers read from traditional papers that engaged with DH themes (not a bad thing!), many other people presented projects that were already online. I took notes and scrawled down a bunch of URLs, so I thought I would post them here for those of you who might be interested. As for the project I’m working on—an interactive history of the sonic boom tentatively titled “Boomscape”—well, more on that at a later date.
