Hello, all- I’ve revamped a blog I started over the summer that focuses on material culture. I’m trying to use it as a ‘public notebook’ of sorts for research-related ideas, as well as a spot to craft my perspectives & writing on aspects (interesting, at least to me) of material culture. You can find it here.
On a related note, this blog is part of a WPMU intallation over at A&AA that we are piloting this year. In order to streamline admin and support, it’s not open to a large number of users at this point. We’ll be sure to keep everyone posted, however, as the work we are doing in terms of customizing the system in order to integrate curriculum, research, and collaborative communication might just end up benefiting everyone on campus in the near future…

Congrats to UO Libraries’ Karen Estlund and Jon Jablonski on being chosen to attend the NEH Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship at the University of Virginia Library in November 2009.
UO will probably send at least one other representative to the May 2010 institute on Space & Place in Next-Generation Digital Humanities Scholarship.

Notes from 8/24/09 Retreat, McKenzie Collaboration Center
Our retreat had two parts: a presentation on services available to UO digital scholars, and breakout sessions/group reports addressing the following 4 issues:
What would you describe as the main challenges facing digital scholars at the University of Oregon?
What might we do to overcome those challenges?
As scholars, what do you want from this group?
Discuss the draft description of group and its mission.
To learn what we talked about, read on! The four breakout issues come first, then the digital services available to UO scholars. (more…)
