Cards Against Digital Humanities update Fri, 05 Sep 2014 02:15:25 +0000 Continue reading ]]>

Submissions for Cards Against Digital Humanities are coming in! While I don’t think we’ll have enough suggestions to play this weekend, I’m hopeful we’ll collect enough to have a deck ready for our friends at THATCamp Games.

Here’s a preview of some of the ideas submitted to date:

Black card: Blank is not dead. White cards: Wikipedia; lab grown beef; the syllabus

Black card: I prefer to spend my office hours blank. White cards: trolling ProfHacker; sniffing white board markers; egosurfing

Black card: Humanities instructors do blank better. White cards: Stanley Fish; holding in a fart while lecturing; hacked nudes

Please continue to share your suggestions, and, if you’re not sure what this is all about, you’ll find an explanation in this previous post.
