« Digital Humanities Virtual Seminar 2023 »: Diane Jakacki (Bucknell U)

As part of the 2023 edition of the « Digital Humanities Virtual Seminar » series organized by the CRIHN, the Thinc Lab (Guelph), The Humanities Data Lab (Ottawa), and the Center for Digital Humanities (Toronto Metropolitan U) around the theme of « Communities », Diane Jakacki (Bucknell U and Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Digital Humanities) will present a talk entitled « For Want of a Nail: Need, Speed, and the Future of Cooperation in Digital Scholarly Production » on Thursday 26 January 2023 @ 10am in person at the University of Guelph and via zoom:

As digital humanities research projects grow and the systems required to support them become more complex, scholars, builders, and administrators must find ways to balance individual and institutional expectations and ambitions. Working piecemeal on custom-built tools is no longer efficient. But supplying a monolithic solution does not satisfy, either. Digital humanists have proved that we are excellent collaborators; now we need to work together more intentionally to ensure that we can share in the benefits of what we develop going forward without disregarding what has been built in the past.

This talk will draw upon observations and experiences in collaborative development of the REED London project and the Linked Editing Academic Framework virtual research environment. It concerns workflows, standards, and community-produced practices and looks forward to effective partnerships that will uphold our communities as well as our practices.

Diane Jakacki (Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Digital Humanities, 2022-3) is digital scholarship coordinator and associate faculty in Comparative & Digital Humanities at Bucknell University. Her research focuses on digital scholarly production and publication, pedagogy, and early modern British drama and culture. She has published and presented broadly on DH, including a co-edited volume Early Modern Studies After the Digital Turn (ITER 2016) with Laura Estill and Michael Ullyot, and What We Teach When We Teach DH (forthcoming from U Minnesota Press as part of the Debates in DH series in 2023) co-edited with Brian Croxall. She is the lead researcher of the REED London project, principal investigator of the Mellon Foundation funded Liberal Arts Based Publishing Cooperative project and partner with the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory in developing the Linked Editorial Academic Framework (LEAF) virtual research environment.
