I’m concentrating on finishing my PhD until summer 2014, so I’m not giving many talks. In April 2014 I’m a keynote speaker at the 3rd international Sharing is Caring seminar, in May I’m in Bristol for the Museums Computer Group’s Museums Get Mobile and in Boston for THATCamp NE, in July I’m presenting “Lightweight usability testing for digital humanities projects (AKA, ‘testing doesn’t have to be taxing’)” in the Introduction to Digital Humanities strand of the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School 2014 then I’m in Lausanne to present ‘Play as Process and Product: On Making Serendip-o-matic’ at Digital Humanities 2014 with fellow alumni of 2013′s One Week One Tool. In August 2014 I’m teaching ‘Crowdsourcing Cultural Heritage’ with Ben Brumfield at HILT (Humanities Intensive Learning + Teaching) at MITH in Maryland, in October I’m giving a paper at the Public History in a Digital World: The Revolution Reconsidered conference in Amsterdam and in November I’m keynoting at New Zealand’s National Digital Forum (talking about the Participatory Commons). From September – December 2014 I’ll be based at Trinity College Dublin for a CENDARI Visiting Research Fellowship.
My edited volume on ‘Crowdsourcing our Cultural Heritage’ for Ashgate, featuring chapters from some of the most amazing people working in the field will be published in October 2014. (I know I’m biased, but seriously.)
