Earlier today, I gave a presentation to the GVSU History Department faculty colloquium dealing with my groping attempts the last few years to integrate digital humanities methods and thinking into my academic life. The title of the talk is, tongue firmly in cheek, “Cake or Death?: A Personal Look at Embracing the Academic Digital Life.” For anyone interested in what kind of amused ramblings I can make about a topic I kinda sorta understand, you can find a PDF of my remarks below, along with a list of pertinent links (i.e. websites I used for and in the talk). Comments, criticisms, suggestions, and compliments are welcome.
