        Subject: Digital Transformations Moot

Readers of Humanist who are not attending (or were unable to get tickets 
for) the Digital Transformations Moot, a major event being organised by 
the Arts and Humanities Research Council in London on 19 November, may 
be interested in taking a look at the brochure for the event which is 
available for download at:


I think what is particularly interesting about this event is that, 
although there are some interesting and important 'yacks', much of the 
emphasis of the event is on the large number of interactive stalls and 
installations. Does this prefigure how DH conferences should develop - 
hack rather than yack?

The brochure also gives details of the live-streaming of the event:

The event will be live-streamed. Please tell your colleagues that they 
can watch at http://digitrans.crowdvine.com/ pages/watch-live and on the 
AHRC website at http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/watchthemootlive
