    Making Hay: Lessons in Collaboration from One Week | One Tool

    Digital Humanities projects are rarely blessed with abundant, or even
    adequate, resources. Staff, skills, equipment, and money are almost
    always tight. The experience of One Week | One Tool
    (, an NEH Institute for Advanced Topics in
    Digital Humanities, demonstrates that time and resource constraints can
    be made to work in a project’s favor. First in 2010 and again in 2013,
    One Week | One Tool brought together a diverse group of academic and
    cultural professionals to conceive, plan, build, and launch an open
    source software tool in only seven days. Despite, or perhaps because
    of, these strict constraints, both groups succeeded in releasing what
    have proved to be extremely well-used tools for humanities research:
    Anthologize and Serendip-o-matic. This talk will explore some of the
    lessons learned from One Week | One Tool for collaboration and project
    management in digital humanities and the academic work at large.
