The UCLA Hammer Museum is seeking to hire a Project Manager for Digital Initiatives to oversee a new online platform that will make our collections, exhibitions, and programs more dynamic and accessible to both scholarly and general audiences. Funded by a 3-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Project Manager for Digital Initiatives will be responsible for direct management of all aspects of the project, from initial research and infrastructure development to content creation and dissemination. Instructions for submitting applications are posted on our website.
The Placeable project supports the development of a mobile, place-based learning platform that is modular and customizable for small to medium cultural organizations. Our pilot project site at The Wassaic Project, a multi-disciplinary cultural center located in rural Dutchess County, New York, provides arts and humanities learning fostered through local school and community participation.

This course was taught in 2012-13 in collaboration with the Fowler Museum of Cultural History and the Department of World Arts and Cultures at UCLA.
The first half of the 2-quarter course involved UCLA students in field research with LA-based artists and creative communities, to create digital documentary works using Vimeo, Zeega, and other tools, for public exhibition via the website www.documentingculture.com. In the second quarter, students continued fieldwork, creating a short documentary film based on their subject
From the syllabus:
Web de données, logique modale, création numérique. Le Web de données, ou Web sémantique, en « libérant les données », est-il de nature à faciliter la création numérique ?
Linked data, modal logic, digital creation. Web of data, or Semantic web, opening data, is it supposed to make digital art creation easier?
The Writing Studies Tree (writingstudiestree.org) – an online, open-access, interactive database of individual scholars, educational institutions, and the disciplinary movements that connect them – offers an “academic genealogy” for the field of writing studies that serves as a model for visualizing the social history of humanities disciplines. Through a fixed data structure that gives open editing privileges to thousands of members, the site aggregates collective visualizations of the field, presenting its history anew and enabling scholars to identify patterns and movements in new ways.
The Martha Berry Digital Archive (MBDA) project is publishing the writings of early 20th-century educator and philanthropist Martha Berry. To achieve project goals, MBDA has developed and is currently testing a participatory metadata editing tool which enables Dublin Core metadata editing in the Omeka platform.
I'd like to start a digital project--part collaborative forum, part archive, part teaching tool--regarding adaptations and remediations of literary works. I'm not seeing this as a blog or compendium per se, but more as a diverse, interactive resource for teachers and students involved in courses featuring literary texts and adaptations of them (e.g, film, graphic novel, mashup, visual, etc.). Ideally, such a DH resource would aid us as scholars and as teachers, as well as aiding students in different kinds of courses.
Free Press Bible is a tool that promotes deep ideological self examination and refinement through a process called self canonization and targeted discussion based on user chosen articles. More can be learned by visiting the website or communicating with me directly.
I am interested in collaborators to help brainstorm and draft a grant proposal for project funding--or, just for building! My basic idea is as follows: a mobile reading application that will allow users to note the appearance of selected textual patterns. I am not thinking of a robust annotation tool, as there are projects devoted to just that.
