The Digital Humanities: challenges and accomplishments

The amazing coordinators of DH 2009 (held this year at College Park, Maryland) have put together a YouTube channel of “lightning interviews” with various attendees of the conference. The participants were asked to address the main challenges and/or accomplishments of the the Digital Humanities, providing some insightful and personal reflections on these fundamental concerns. NINES Director Andrew Stauffer (University of Virginia) pinpointed the importance of sustainability in a world of flux and innovation, Associate Director Laura Mandell (Miami University) focused on the necessity of good data, and Michael Eberle-Sinatra, Co-editor of the NINES ¬†Romantic ¬†Editorial Board and President of Synergies, drives home the benefits of (interdisciplinary) collaboration.
