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.

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.

I am interested in digital libraries, with special emphasis on metadata issues (creation, standardization, access, semantics, usability); use and users of digital resources; digital collection management and development; and digital project management. Like others in my field, I believe the digital humanities offer scholars at the junior-faculty level many opportunities to do innovative, original research and break from the typically restrictive route to tenure in ways possibly transcending the intellectual gains of the scholarly monograph.
