Digital Humanists,

On March 18th, 2009, digital humanists from around the world are  
planning to collectively document their day, and we are looking for  
interested participants!

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (ADLDH) is a community  
project that will bring together digital humanists to document what  
they do on one day, March 18th. It is an autoethnography project by  
digital humanists about the digital humanities. The goal of the  
project is to create a web site that weaves together the journals of  
the participants into a picture that answers the question, “Just what  
do computing humanists really do?” Participants will document their  
day through photographs and commentary in a blog-like journal. The  
collection of these journals with links, tags, and comments will make  
up the final work online.

To participate, please complete the application form by January 30th.  
Apply yourself or encourage your colleagues and students to join in.  
We will accept reasonable applications that provide different  
perspectives on what it is to do computing in the humanities. We are  
looking for a diversity of participants from different regions,  
backgrounds, roles, and disciplinary perspectives.
