I’m concentrating on finishing my PhD in 2014, so I’m not giving many talks.In the meantime, 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.)
In October I’m giving a paper at the Public History in a Digital World: The Revolution Reconsidered conference in Amsterdam and running a workshop at the Geffrye Museum. In November I’m keynoting at New Zealand’s National Digital Forum (talking about the Participatory Commons). I’ll also be in London for the Museums Computer Group’s UKMW14: Museums Beyond the Web. I’ve got some workshops and travel for talks already booked in for March and May 2015, but I’ll also be available for freelance or permanent work in 2015.
Some recent papers
I’ve stopped updating this while I finish my thesis, but…
In August 2014 I taught ‘Crowdsourcing Cultural Heritage’ with Ben Brumfield at HILT (Humanities Intensive Learning + Teaching) at MITH in Maryland. In July I presented “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 went to 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 April 2014 I was a keynote speaker at the 3rd international Sharing is Caring seminar, in May I was in Bristol for the Museums Computer Group’s Museums Get Mobile and in Boston for THATCamp NE.
