I’m working on two different topics: expert calibrated peer trust and developing a web-based application platform for digital humanities.
My primary work is a general-purpose, web-based digital humanities platform–essentially Lego for DH. This platform is being developed to support four different DH projects this semester that together have a combination of bibliography, transcription, concordance, GIS, and general database tasks. The goal is to develop a general methodology for mapping the traditional humanist “editorial statement” (within the context of a digital project) to an electronic description that can be used by the computer to help build the project. (I’ve started a tumblelog on the project for those interested in the nitty-gritty.)
The peer trust work is being done in the context of an instructional technology project, but it may be applicable in DH projects that employ crowd sourcing.
