DARIAH recently released a report on open access publishing of research data in the humanities. It is part of DARIAH’s Humanities at Scale project (HaS). As an output of work package 7 the report is a first step in the design process of an Open Humanities Data Platform, which will be the main result of this work package. The report serves as input for the design and sustainability plan, and will ultimately contribute to creating this platform.

In our CFP for the Cripping Digital Writing and Technology Blog Carnival, we asked writers to explore how the disability studies key term “cripping” could be explored and implemented in digital rhetoric and technology. We were very lucky to get a wide slate of practical, pedagogical, and theoretical posts that challenged the ways we teach, write, and move through the world. Here’s a round up of the posts from this blog carnival.

If you spend too much time inside a project, you soon become unable to see its faults. At The Programming Historian, I suspect we fell victim to that problem. We are not so proud to admit that amongst our contributing authors, we’re predominantly male: Only 7 women and 23 men. We’re also predominantly white and North American – another fact we’re not proud of. So, as a start, we began to address these questions of inclusivity by opening up a discussion on our message board, and later an anonymous survey to ask why our gender numbers are so imbalanced.

We are very happy to publish the report Digital humanities enhanced. Challenges and prospects of Ancient Studies. A retrospect on the DH-conference in November 2015 in Leipzig written by Julia Jushaninowa about DHEgypt2015 (Altertumswissenschaften in a Digital Age: Egyptology, Papyrology and Beyond).
We often think of the library as a service, space, and resource provider but could there be value in the library serving as a withholder? The recent report by Cornell University librarians, published by Ithaka S+R, “A Day in the Life of a (Serious) Researcher,” makes the bold suggestion that libraries could help patrons by ensuring that they are free from digital distractions when they work, such as by creating Wi-Fi-blackout areas, offering check-in services for phones, or renting out laptops with internet blockers or other related applications.
