    Hi Everyone,

    We’re delighted to announce our schedule of seminar meetings for the Fall 2011 semester, which are centered on the theme of “Digital Humanities in Practice.” We’ll be looking at specific instantiations of DH at CUNY, in libraries, in the classroom, and in graduate education. We hope you can join us!

    Thanks, Matt — so many excellent-sounding events! Yet so many of them conflicting with other commitments I’ve made. Would it be possible to set up some kind of recording (ustream archive? Macaulay flip cam? audio podcast?) so that folks in my situation can enjoy vicariously, even when we can’t actually participate?

    Also, relatedly, is the English program really having a Friday Forum on Rosh Hashanah? Won’t the school be closed?



    Hi Ben,

    We will definitely look into video/ustreaming options. And thanks for the heads-up on the Rosh Hashanah conflict (oy!). The GC will be open, but no classes will be held. It looks like we’ll need to reschedule that event for the Spring.
