Hello and welcome, all!

Can we start by introducing ourselves and our DH interests/projects, plus any topics, questions and issues that you'd like to see addressed here?

I'll start off by welcoming everyone to the NINES discussion space, which we designed precisely for gathering communities of scholars around topics and conversations.

I just finished teaching a course in the Rare Book School with Bethany Nowviskie here at the University of Virginia.  The course was "Digitizing the Historical Record" and we focused a good deal on 19C materials: their various details, structures, and technologies that offer both opportunities and challenges to digitization.

Most of our students were librarians, and it reminded me how important it is that scholars, librarians, and digital technologists find pathways and mechanisms for mutual collaborative discussions about the future of the 19C archive.

Looking forward to hearing more from this group.  Again, welcome!

Hi, my name is Erin Murrah-Mandril.  I'm a PhD candidate at the University of New Mexico.  I focus on nineteenth and early-twentieth-century American literature, especially Mexican American lit.  So far I've used digital humanities mostly in my teaching.  I've taught a number of online courses, which forced me to get familiar with DH projects, and now I love using them in all my classes.  I'm going to try to set up a course page on NINES for an Early American lit class this fall.
