Vote for me!
Or rather, vote for my team, who have been nominated in the 2012 Digital Humanities Awards http://DHawards.org/DHawards2012/voting. We’ve been nominated in the “Best DH project for public audiences” category, for our CEISMIC digital archive.
Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned CEISMIC on here, have I? That’s where I’ve been working for the last couple of years, helping build a massive archive of material related to the Christchurch earthquakes – we’re trying to collect everything from people’s stories to government soil reports to news footage to historic images of demolished buildings to the tweets people sent. It’s a fantastic job, building something that will be of immense value to future researchers, and really fascinating work, although sometimes it’s a bit depressing when I have to spend my days immersed in images of destruction – a bit hard to move on from memories of the earthquakes when you’re surrounded by them all day! Anyway, check out http://www.ceismic.org.nz and https://quakestudies.canterbury.ac.nz to see what we’ve been up to (QuakeStudies is the research arm of CEISMIC, and the area I spend most of my time working on).
Voted 🙂 Good luck, sounds like something that will be of immense value to future generations!
