Documenting DH

Welcome to the Digital Humanities Research Network’s Oral Interview project that is documenting digital humanities and digital humanists at the University of Wisconsin.

This is what this project is: students and scholars around the UW campus who talk about their projects, methodologies, successes, challenges and overall insights as digital humanists! It is our goal to create a digital oral archive for both the UW community and the public at large who are interested in watching DH develop as a vibrant and essential part of humanities scholarship in the twenty-first century.

These are the interviews that you can access:

Robin Rider, a librarian in the University of Wisconsin’s Memorial Library Special Collections, as well as a senior lecturer in the History Department, has seen enormous change in the way librarians manage data and the possibilities for humanist inquiry during the past two decades.
