There are numerous topics that I’m interested in discussing at THATCampSoCal. Here are a few:
- Rapid digital tool-building experiments. I can share insights from my work on CHNM’s One Week | One Tool team.
- Using WordPress’ CMS features for building an online CV/portfolio. Recently I used WP3.0 as a platform for Chapman University’s Faculty Promotion & Tenure ePortfolios, and can share my work on that project as well as suggest possibilities for future plugin/widget development that would streamline this process.
- Strategies for building local DH communities, via sites like DHSoCal, and also through creating & hosting a California-based DH summer institute that’s loosely-modeled on the work done by University of Victoria’s DHSI.
- The impact of social media on the terrain of humanities scholarship. I can contribute my experience based on promoting and podcasting Yale’s “Past’s Digital Presence” conference.
