Day of DH 2020

Day of DH is an initiative of centerNet – and this year’s event on April 29 will be mainly held on Twitter.

The Call for Participation says:

Day of DH 2020 will take place on April 29. This year, Digital Humanists are encouraged to communicate what they do on Twitter, what they are working on and the rhythm of their life in DH. As many, if not most, institutions are working virtually because of COVID-19 social distancing and quarantines, we can reach out to one another and share how we are continuing our work and continuing our lives. The variety of experience from different parts of the world will provide a richer experience than ever! In the past, Centers have organized events or introduced new activities in their spaces as part of their Day of DH. As we are almost all away from our offices and center locations, this Day of DH provides an opportunity to share an online activity, host a meetup with other DH practitioners in your own and nearby time zones, or just to share favorite lectures, tutorials, blog posts or digital publications so that others may also experience them.

Day of DH on Twitter

Day of DH will be using the twitter hashtag #dayofdh2020.

Day of DH will take place primarily on Twitter, a widely used and easily accessible platform for many. If you or your center will be writing a blog post or sharing on some other medium, please tweet the URL of your blog post or web page. We will be collecting and archiving posts, and will try to harvest links as well. Please post about your work day, your plans and your daily activities. Day of DH is a way to show how digital humanities happens in many different ways, and is practiced by a varied group of people.
