I am already committed to talking about historical visualizations and event standards with my buddy Jerm. But I’d also really like to see/attend/crash two additional panels:
1) Something on management: Project management, organizational management, staff management, financial management, resource management. Digital humanities work has put a lot of us in the position of managing fairly large “businesses”—work for which our graduate work emphatically did NOT prepare us. I’d love the chance to discuss management challenges and strategies with other campers. A group therapy session, if you will.
2) Something on funding, and more specifically on sustainability, both for digital humanities projects and digital humanities organizations. Dan, Mills, and I talked about sustainability on the last Digital Campus, but there’s a lot more to be said. It’s a huge issue both for us and for our funders, and one around which there’s a lot of miscommunication and misunderstanding. It would be nice to start a dialog at THATCamp.
Anyone interested in either of these ideas, please chime in with comments.
