In addition to safe, in-person socialization with colleagues at McGill, there are great ways to stay connected to the Digital Humanities buzz online. Here are three tips to help you keep up with the latest conversations, projects, and opportunities in the world of Digital Humanities.
Tip #1: If you don't have Twitter already, get one
It's a true fact that most of what's happening in the Digital Humanities is happening on Twitter. Digital humanists love their live tweeting, their bots, the posts of desperation as they grapple with their latest research conundrum, and most importantly, announcements of upcoming events and (professional) opportunities.
