To Lincoln! Digital Humanities 2013

I am heading to Nebraska tomorrow for the 2013 Digital Humanities conference (#DH2013). When I asked permission to go, I was full of nerves–a lot of the program seems over my head or slightly outside my area of knowledge. A number of people have told me these are the best kinds of conferences to go to, and I believe it. Still, it’s a bit scary, so I’m carefully plotting where I’ll be.

This is also some kind of promise about writing up these sessions too, though I suspect a combo of evening email catch up and the siren song of the Nebraska nightlife may keep me from too much conference writing (how do people do so much of that?!)

Anyway, if you’re interested in any of these things, please ask me! (full program here, edit: there are abstracts available from a link at the top).

In between and after these sessions I am hoping to rent a bike from the UNL Campus Recreation Centre and eat my way through the downtown, forecast (32, humid, thunderstorming daily) be damned.
