Reflective Post #4
Post by 4:30pm, Friday, July 30
Thinking back to how you defined DH in week one, and how Musselman Library defines it in our local context, how has your understanding and/or definition of DH changed over the course of the fellowship? How have your communities of practice caused you to think differently about the definitions you have encountered?

10am-11am EDT: “A DH Project is Never Finished, Merely Abandoned”
Nothing on the Internet lasts forever, and projects must come to an end. What’s next for your project? Do you have further plans for the project, going to blank the site, or will it be “merely abandoned” and left to the ravages of technology changes on the Internet? We will discuss issues of the longevity of DH projects, as well as the challenges of digital preservation. This session will also include time for you to submit your final project links to The Cupola.

- Read “Embracing ephemerality in the digital humanities” by Andy Schocket
- Read Trevor Owens, “Chapter 3: Challenges and Opportunities of Digital Preservation” in The Theory and Craft of Digital Preservation
