Shirley Dugdale
Director, Learning Environments
DEGW North America
www.degw.com

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.

Perry Trolard
Assistant Director
Humanities Digital Workshop
Washington U in Saint Louis
http://hdw.artsci.wustl.edu

The Humanities Digital Workshop is a DH shop in the college’s computing department that supports a variety of projects, to this point primarily electronic scholarly editions. I’m interested in ways to make these editions fruitful for readers & researchers, & in ways to reveal the data they represent through text-analytic & visualization tools.

Douglas Knox
Director of Publication and Digital Initiatives
Newberry Library

I was managing editor of the Encyclopedia of Chicago and have been involved in a number of other digital publication projects ranging from historical GIS reference works to online exhibits. I’m interested in how the digitization of the cultural record can serve scholarly and public purposes. I am particularly interested in the intersections of developments in digital humanities and digital libraries, and what libraries and archives look like when we ask them not just to support search, but the work of historical inference.

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.

Jo Guldi
PhD / Mellon Postdoc in Digital History
University of Chicago
http://www.joguldi.com

Howdy! I’m the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital History within Chicago’s History Department, where I’m teaching new methodologies in information sorting and the history of information revolutions since Gutenberg. As a scholar, I’m writing about the history of the infrastructure state in Britain as it reengineered the relationship between state, market, and everyday life.

I’ve been blogging for upwards of five years now, and I’ve used web 2.0 technologies as an activist before using them to connect interdisciplinary scholars interested in the emerging field of Landscape Studies. I’m broadly interesting in text and visual analysis and promoting new strategies for academic publishing using Web 2.0 technologies. I’m excited about meeting other folks and learning! Say hi!

Joshua Trampier
Ph.D. candidate
Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations
University of Chicago

My background is in ancient Egyptian languages and cultures, as well as in applying remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems to problems of landscape archaeology. My interest in ancient Egypt ranges from the Neolithic to late Roman/early Islamic periods, and I am interested in addressing questions of relationships between archaeological praxis, CRM-relevant law, tourism, and technology. As the Associate Director of CAMEL, I am also interested in digital archive initiatives and standards, as well as geographical data modeling and visualization.
