Today we learned about project development from Jennifer Guiliano, Assistant Professor in the Department of History, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Guiliano’s concept of project management hinges on communication. If you have a great project but can’t communicate about it, it won’t be successful. Every good project has a good question, problem, or provocation; an analytical activity; an audience; and concrete products.
We storified our tweets for this one.
At our DH 101 session, we had the great pleasure of learning from Miriam Posner, Coordinator and Core Faculty, Digital Humanities Program, University of California, Los Angeles. This workshop turned out to be a particularly reflective, even philosophical one. Miriam is interested in uncovering the typically unexamined actions, practices, assumptions, and decisions made over the course of a digital humanities project. She urged us to be more open and reflective when we talk and write about our projects, to explain the assumptions in our work and help our readers/users understand how and why decisions were made.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the redesigned Ancient World Digital Library (AWDL). An initiative of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW), AWDL will identify, collect, curate, and provide access to a broad range of scholarly materials relevant to the study of the ancient world. This site redesign, featuring all new scholarly content, was over a year in the making, involving a deep dive into book metadata and book publishing as well as an overhaul in site functionality. A special thanks to Alberto, Carol, Joe, Kate, Laura, Melitte, and Rasan for their work on this project.
