Dear Sharon,

A few of us are having this discussion over at HASTAC.

Chris Forster's blog post defining the digitial humanities has generated many comments:

I also have a blog post on the issue:

Subject: The CUNY Digital Humanities Resource Guide

 
The CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative is delighted to announce the launch
of a new collaborative publication: The CUNY Digital Humanities Resource
Guide (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/The_CUNY_Digital_Humanities_Resource_Guide). Presenting a broad, annotated view of the field, the guide will serve as
an introduction to DH for newcomers by offering a balanced archive of best
practices, ongoing projects, and disciplinary debates.

The guide covers a wide range of subjects, including Defining the Digital
Humanities (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/Defining_the_Digital_Humanities),
Hot Topics ( http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/Hot_Topics), Sample
Projects (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/Sample_Projects), DH
Syllabi (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/DH_Syllabi ), and
Conferences and Events (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/Conferences_%26_Events ).  Check
out the Table of Contents (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/The_CUNY_Digital_Humanities_Resource_Guide) for the full range of topics.

The initial version of the guide is just that -- a beginning.  As you read
through the guide, please let us know whether you have corrections or
additional information to share with us.  As the Using This Guide (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wiki/index.php/Using_This_Guide) page notes, the
wiki itself is editable only by members of the CUNY Academic Commons (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu), but non-CUNY contributors can add to the guide
in the following ways:

* Email your suggestions to cunydhi at gmail.com* Tag items on Delicious (http://www.delicious.com) with cunydhi
* Tweet suggestions to us at http://twitter.com/cunydhi
* Leave a comment on our launch blog post (http://cunydhi.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2010/09/21/introducing-the-cuny-digital-humanities-resource-guide/)

We hope that the guide will provide a useful starting point for others just
entering the DH conversation, and we urge you to help us improve it.  Please
do not hesitate to get in touch with suggestions, corrections, and comments.

Sincerely,

Charlie Edwards and Matthew K. Gold, Co-Directors
