I “get” GIT–I see the utility–I see the logic–I see why it’s great. But I’d love some discussion on how to start using it, what are some preferred GIT clients, and what the best-GIT-practices are. If this conversation could be combined with a western-twanged series of puns on the word “git,” that would be ideal.
Digital Scholarly Editions
This is my main DH interest at the moment. I would love to talk about:
- Issues of encoding
- What software platforms people are using (Islandora, Omeka, by-hand?)
- Excellent, and execrable, examples of digital scholarly editions
- Issues of copyright (i.e. “Do ALL digital editions have to be out of copyright???”)
- What kinds of scholarly apparatus do digital editions facilitate that were harder or impossible in paper editions?
- Multi-media digital editions
Working without institutional infrastructure

For the many of us who are still on the hunt for the permanent position, how do we think about the issues of our digital work differently? For example, in a workshop I was once in, someone said: “This is what you’ll need to tell your design team…” What about when we ARE our team? What are the dangers of developing digital tools, editions, creations of any kind on resources provided by a university where you are only a temporary employee? How do we access resources? How do our grant applications differ? How do we access the support systems we need to make our work…work?
