“focused on thinking about ways that the ASECS website might become more user-friendly, interactive and reflective of contemporary digital design principals. We also briefly touched on the ways the Digital Humanities Caucus can best serve the organization and communicate with its members. We wrapped up with several action points, including an ASECS member survey….”
Today I am proud to say that, unlike many plans made in the intellectual excitement and general joie de vivre that conferences elicit, this one has come to fruition. Thanks to the hard work of Eleanor Shevlin, in collaboration with an ad hoc committee of DH caucus members, a survey was released to ASECS members this spring. This week a report summarizing the results of the survey is being emailed to members, and is also available here. If you are someone with eighteenth century and digital humanities interests (which, if you are reading this blog, I kind of assume you are), please read and comment on the report, even if you are not an ASECS member. Discussion will take place on the EMOB (Early Modern Online Bibliography) blog, so please post your comments there. What do you think of the results? Do members’ interests, abilities or digital needs surprise you? Most importantly, what should the DH Caucus of ASECS do with this information? We don’t want to come up with an action plan until the results have been discussed–so please join in!
