I’m interested in working with people developing and implementing the best tools and approaches for supporting digital humanities for research, collaboration and teaching. I have particular interest in networked tools for collaboration and communication. The faculty, students and other scholars associated with our Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at Case Western Reserve University are using some digital tools and resources, and would like to engage with the burgeoning national digital humanities community.

James Coltrain
Ph.D. candidate
History
Northwestern University

Fields of Interest: Imaging/Visualization, Libraries/Digital Archives, Modelling/Simulations

James Coltrain is a doctoral candidate in Early American History at Northwestern University. His academic interests include using studies of material and visual culture to address questions of social and cultural history. He is currently writing a dissertation on the architecture and society of the fortified imperial communities of 18th-century North America. He is also very interested in the use of new media, both to present scholarly findings and for public outreach. James has completed virtual 3D reconstructions of the original Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, the medieval city of Metz, and a number of colonial forts as part of his work on historical visualization.

As the Demonstrator Project Manager for the Bamboo Planning Process, I’m interested in the breadth and depth of digital humanities, with a particular focus on areas where improved coordination, infrastructure, and shareable resources have the potential to better enable research for arts & humanities scholars. I am also the director of Scholarly Technology and Research Computing, part of the central IT group at the University of Chicago.

My interests lie in simulating highly detailed massively multiuser/player virtual worlds that evolve independently in realtime. I am interested in using these systems to improve the methods that human and AI agents have to interact with each other/the environment and the emergent behavior that results.

The Collaboratory Project
Northwestern University
http://ignotus.com/

As an artist, I work in both digital and traditional media, with particular interest in intermedia, algorithmic composition, and performance. At Northwestern University, where I taught interactive multimedia and virtual reality for artists for many years, I am currently working at the Collaboratory Project, a collaborative online environment for K12 education. I have curated various exhibitions of electronic media. With Debora Wood I was co-curator of “Imaging by Numbers: A Historical View of the Computer Print,” which showed at the Block Museum, Northwestern University, in January-April 2008.

Bill Sterner
Lecturer, Dir. MacLab
Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science
U of Chicago

I’ve long been interested in crossover projects between computing and the humanities, and have taught a variety of courses related to themes of “computer programming as a liberal art.” I’m currently working on a monograph on Aristotle’s Poetics as a productive science that may someday have implications for thinking about artifactual design. Brenda Laurel’s Computers as Theater would be in a related domain space.

Shirley Dugdale
Director, Learning Environments
DEGW North America

I am a space planner interested in new modes of scholarship and in design to support visualization and collaborative work with complex data. In particular I want to understand how the future needs of digital humanities and social sciences will differ from those in science and engineering. Much of our work at DEGW has been with university libraries, educators and researchers to understand new demands on learning and workplaces through the integration of user research, strategy and design.

Bob Taylor
Director
Academic & Research Technologies
Northwestern University

I’m director of the academic computing organization at Northwestern University. Software developers in Academic & Research Technologies have tackled interesting work in the areas of audio archives (NSF Digital LIbraries in the Classroom program), high-resolution image viewers, text analysis frameworks (WordHoard, MONK in-progress), cultural heritage digitization projects (high-resolution sculpture and mural efforts in Dunhuang and Xian, China), on-line book and manuscript presentation models (Vesalius project, The Encyclopedia of Chicago), and repository interoperability issues.

One of the areas of research computing investigation this fall at NU is development and planning for science hubs: services and software for supporting the work of on-line, “virtual organizations” of large scale, multi-university research teams on NSF, NIH or NASA projects. I’m interested in eventually understanding whether the cyberinfrastructure work that is being done for distributed research teams on large-scale science projects will hold any value for the smaller-scale “craft” traditions (and usually, one-off tools) that have often characterized digital humanities efforts.

I am an associate professor of German with a primary research focus on the cultural reception of various technologies from the railway to the computer. I am interested in humanities computing as a way of representing my next project rather than the traditional monograph format. I am currently working on developing a joint workshop between my university and a German university dealing with digital humanities.
