Weekly Roundup: September 6

Just a quick post due to the holiday weekend. In honor of Labor Day tomorrow in the US, I wanted to repost “Tools for Digital Labor History,” a concise intro useful to all historians, compiled by Toby Higbie for the Laboring Big Data panel at LAWCHA (Labor and Working Class History Association) 2015.

I also want to take a moment to revisit the Digital Labor conference from last year, at the New School. Select videos from the proceedings can be found via this youtube playlist.

And, considering that it is the beginning of a new semester, check out “How Not To Teach the Digital Humanities” by Ryan Cordell, and “5 Reasons Why Jekyll + github is a Terrible Teaching Tool” by Vince Knight.

Weekly Roundup: June 8

Genius

  • Global Perspectives on Digital History, a site that collects material from “hundreds of venues where high-quality scholarship is likely to appear, including the personal websites of scholars, institutional sites, blogs, and other feeds” including Twitter.
  • ¬†Finally, I’m soliciting resources on GIS – these may be books, websites, blogs, videos, anything. To begin, a friend recommended I check out the GIS subreddit. What else is out there?
