Living out loud: The Visionary Cross Project and the Public Humanities Heather Hobma, Daniel Paul O'Donnell, Marco Callieri, Matteo Dellepiane, James Graham, Catherine Karkov, Roberto Rosselli Del Turco CMRS/ETRUS. University of Saskatchewan. January 16, 2014

Informational vs. Critical ● Critical: Scholars writing for scholars – – Little broad context – ● Low accessibility Not for popular audiences Informational: Interpreters writing for public – High accessibility – Broad context – Popular audiences

Digital Humanities ● ● From early digital editions that mimicked print/critical models (Humanities computing) To current generation editions/projects that have heavier public engagement – Crowd-sourcing – Open annotation – Linked and open data

Public wants in ● “You” wants to be/is very active – – ● Wikipedia Museum attendance is up (online and in person) Public's proxies (government and funding agencies) stress mobilisation and dissemination – Increasingly important part of funding applications

Stuff is gorgeous

We are all (going to be) interpreters ● ● ● We are the people who both study AND present objects Becoming responsible for both critical and educational/informational aspects of our projects Run into same issues museum directors etc. have had to face.

Partially ready ● ● ● Computation requires us to go back to first principles (in this case UI design) DH has a sense of self of itself as being engaged with the world We recognise that our material is great and potentially popular

But we need to get more serious ● Easy to see the work as trivial – – ● Not at the research coal face Can seem an additional/bureaucratic add on And yet popular dissemination/instruction is actually very hard
