Looking for ” a leader in research and teaching in the context of new multidisciplinary clusters.”
It was a great idea, but it turned into a sizzling mess.
I’m looking forward to a moment in the future. That moment is when the word “digital” is dropped from “digital humanities.” This semester I’m teaching an introductory digital humanities course to undergraduates at Hendrix College and one thing we’re doing is teleconferencing with DH scholars across the country.

The Penn State University Libraries in partnership with the College of the Liberal Arts seek a creative, forward-thinking scholar for the new position of Digital Humanities Research Designer. The Digital Humanities Research Designer will be familiar with a range of technologies and have direct experience bringing digital approaches to bear on research and teaching. The scholar in this position will work as an intellectual partner with faculty, students, and staff in the College of the Liberal Arts.
The successful candidate will collaborate with humanities faculty and library colleagues to expand modes of humanistic research through emerging and existing technologies. In providing research project support and conducting workshops on the use of various tools, for example, the Digital Humanities Research Designer will be able to translate and share ideas and concepts effectively across diverse interdisciplinary audiences. The Digital Humanities Research Designer will maintain currency in the field and may pursue his or her own research to do so.
Are you an experienced digital humanities scholar-practitioner with a strong background in project management and public service? The University of Virginia Library seeks an energetic, adaptable leader for the digital consultation services and intellectual programming of our internationally-respected Scholars’ Lab. The ideal candidate is detail-oriented, eager to work collaboratively with diverse faculty and staff, and able to muster and effectively communicate U.Va. Library’s deep resources for digital scholarship. This supervisory position is responsible for day-to-day operations in the Scholars’ Lab and, together with the heads of Graduate Programs and Research & Development, completes the leadership team reporting to the director of the Library’s Department of Digital Research & Scholarship.
The Head of the Scholars’ Lab should have a strong service ethic, broad technical knowledge, and ability to collaborate as a partner with faculty and graduate students, enabling next-generation digital scholarship in a library lab setting. He or she should also be able to take good advantage of the “20% time” afforded to all Department of Digital Research & Scholarship to pursue professional development and their own (often collaborative) research projects related to the mission of the Scholars’ Lab. This is a full-time, permanent managerial and professional staff position at U.Va.

Austin College Humanities Division faculty recently hosted a Digital Humanities Colloquium, bringing together digital media experts from around the country (and Hong Kong) to facilitate a discussion on the intersection of the digital world with the humanities. For those of you who were unable to attend I have assembled a few of the highlights of the conference. This is by no means an exhaustive reference, but rather an aggregation of links and main points of the lectures.
