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.

- This syllabus from Rachel Sagner Buurma, which incorporates digital methods and tools throughout the course
Upcoming: I’m in the middle of writing an account of HTRC 15 (though you can see my tweets and retweets here), and I plan to write a post on Anelise H. Shrout‘s recent visit to my department to give a talk and a workshop (spoiler alert: both were great).
