CFP: Calling for Proposals to Host Day of DH in 2017 and 2018

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is an open community initiative sponsored by centerNet that each year brings together scholars interested in the digital humanities from around the world to document what they do on one day. The goal is to create a website that weaves together a picture of the participants’ activities on the day and which answers the question, ‘Just what do digital humanists really do?’ Participants document their day through photographs and text, all of which is published on a community online platform, forming a record of the day.

Law enforcement sometimes argue that they need backdoors to encryption in order to carry out their mission, while cryptographers like Bruce Schneier describe the public cybersecurity risk from backdoors and say that the "technology just doesn't work that way." I'm here at the Princeton University Center for Information Tech Policy, liveblogging the first public lunch of the semester, where Ed...

As a historian, when I think of charters, the first things I think of are royal charters. The first result when you Google charter, on the other hand, is Charter Telecommunications Company because of course. But as members of the new Praxis Fellowship cohort, my fellow fellows and I tried to chart (I’m sorry) a very different path. The result of our work, The Praxis Charter, 2017-2018,...
