Thanks to Michelle Moravec and Aimée Morrison for their #inclusivesyllabi tweets and work, which encouraged me to try to define DH with a diverse list of examples.

Ways I can improve the list before my next talk:

[ ] Check %s of DH work authors represented on this list by gender, race, sexuality, professional role, degree of experience/student, inside/outside academia...
[ ] Check who gets credited by name for each example (note if there was collaboration or a team involved, describe the roles/skills involved to make the work possible, and link to a full list of the people involved if possible)
[ ] Note overlapping/near fields (e.g. community archives, digital library, feminist computing, activism, digital journalism) and note if practitioners/projects don't actively self-identify as DH
[ ] Teaching/pedagogy examples
[ ] Mentorship examples
[ ] Meta-DH examples (e.g. publishing, DH Twitter analysis/infoviz)
[ ] Community-led work (e.g. Cleveland People's Archive)
[ ] Examples from outside academia
[ ] Undergrad work
[ ] Grad work (e.g. Praxis)
[ ] LGBTQ work
[ ] Alex Gil: examples of minimal computing aka #mincomp. Hardware => @jenterysayers; software => Alex's #xpmethod group; Ed/Jekyll theme; early wearables:; text to sound:
[ ] Add #NEHblackspace to conference example
[ ] meta-DH and infrastructure work (e.g. metadata, coordination); Alex Gil's coordianting the coordinators (bonus DH/DS coordinators spreadsheet & Twitter lists!
[ ] DH and libraries
[ ] DH and ASC
[ ] DH and social science (e.g. @drgoddess' Black Twitter work)
[ ] DH and archaeology (other than 3D work; MATRIX?)
[ ] Art practice as scholarship (e.g. Japanese puppetry as interface into puppetry video catalogue)
[ ] Things I'm missing! Things not many people are currently do!
[ ] Work explicitly focused on addressing issues of social justice
[ ] Maintenance, scaling, recuperative/repair work (, queer slavery tumblr)
[ ]

Notes to add to list

Suggestions for authors and representations of DH my list is missing warmly welcomed! (Note that I’m not looking for more general intro to DH resources, just examples of diverse DH work that I’ve failed to represent with my list.)

Notes to add elsewhere in talk

[ ] Edits/additions to text found in blog post but not presentation slide notes yet
[ ] Example of digitization scholarship (e.g.
Bonus: high-profile friendly & ethical scholars; willingness to share/more frequent documentation of scholarship practices/policies/processes & syllabi & reading lists etc.

Some more example projects to include
