  • HASTAC Scholar | Robert Penn Warren Center | Vanderbilt University
    come to me for help as well and this is a good thing By bringing new technologies into my classrooms I want to embrace both the challenges and the rewards of that decision If I can help students learn to use a new technology and if at the same time this technology helps them do the work of a historian in an effective way then I have doubly succeeded 2 Understanding and interpreting technology Even when a student can complete the functional portion of a digital assignment successfully finding information posting content and more he or she may not fully understand the ramifications of what has happened For this reason I also need to ensure students understand the implications of the digital tools they use This again is something I want to plan for from the outset I want to be sure to dedicate appropriate resources class time handouts office hours toward helping students understand the tools I ask them to use For instance one discussion that might apply in several situations is that of privacy fair use copyright and licensing This is important not only when students are researching and using others work but also when I ask them to post content online they should know who can view their work what others may do with it who owns the rights to it and what the potential ramifications of posting content either in their own name or anonymously may be again something that came up in the AAR session Another discussion that would be useful for many assignments would be how to interpret information that students have found via databases search engines word clouds maps and more Again it is easy but problematic to assume that students will be able to understand such data out of hand Rather I want to plan to assist my students in finding trends categorizing information locating and explaining contradictory information and the like This is of course the work I already do as a teacher of history and I need to remind myself that it is no less urgent to do this when the information comes in a digital medium Those interested in reading further about the 2013 THATCamp AAR might begin with the Tagboard record of tweets from the day along with David McConeghy s and Chris Cantwell s reflections Session descriptions and some session notes also appear on the AAR THATCamp web site In addition I d like to mention with gratitude that my ability to attend the event was due to my position as the 2013 14 HASTAC scholar for Vanderbilt s Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities Thank you for this opportunity Is DH treated as a methodology or a field HASTAC blog post 11 4 2013 I ve recently been thinking about the digital humanities and specifically digital history and have begun wondering whether it is generally treated as a field or as a methodology That is when I list my academic interests I typically list several fields of study such as early modern Britain the European Reformation s the history of the book and digital history humanities Yet I also USE digital history digital humanities to study topics in other fields As a result I ve been trying to piece together some ideas about this seeming crossover and I wondered whether any of you might be able to point me to work that addresses this question or have ideas about it yourselves Thanks in advance A Twitter freshman live tweets a conference HASTAC blog post 10 2 2013 One of my first assignments as the HASTAC scholar for Vanderbilt s Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities was to help enhance their social media presence This included setting up a Twitter account where I could share about the digital humanities in general and some Warren Center events in particular Not having a lot of experience with social media I was a Twitter freshman enthusiastic slightly out of the loop and occasionally awkward but well meaning With input from various sites and from friends I began gaining my bearings I learned which tweets appear in which feeds what a favorite can mean that Twitter automatically shortens URLs after shortening several myself who knew and that when linking to a post or article it is helpful to hint about the content rather than a vague statement that it exists another freshman misstep I made I was still feeling rather uncertain about some aspects of my Twitter presence when I took on my first big challenge live tweeting After reading up a bit on what to expect I gave it a try at a conference honoring the Warren Center s 25th Anniversary I am delighted to say that it went really well even better than I had anticipated and I learned a lot in the process In addition because of the intensity and focused attention I gave to Twitter over that day and a half a few things began to stand out to me that I probably wouldn t have learned as quickly otherwise These things are helping me reflect on my experience and on social media more broadly Here then are my observations about social media and in the comments I d appreciate hearing any similar or contrasting experiences that you have had as well Community participation happened and grew more quickly than I had expected I didn t have many followers when I started but over the period of the conference several people ended up seeing and sharing my posts This growing conversation was facilitated both by personal interactions and by the networking potential of Twitter at the conference I met someone else interested in tweeting and shared the hashtag I d been using some friends watched for and retweeted my tweets and I tried to do some strategic tagging Through all these means I gained some followers I followed some new people and a digital conversation developed that included not only those in attendance but also
