On Friday, November 7, 2014, Benjamin J. Doyle (TAPAS project manager) was invited to speak about the TAPAS project with a group of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Connecticut. TAPAS was included as one of three Northeastern University based digital humanities projects to participate in the “Conversations in Digital Scholarship,” an ongoing discussion series on the digital humanities through UConn’s Scholars Collaborative (http://scholarscollab.uconn.edu/conversations-in-digital-scholarship/). Organized by Anna Kijas , the combined talk, which included topics in “radical” archive practices (Hopwood | ECDA), community building and TEI-based project management (Doyle | TAPAS), and graduate student labor in DH (McGrath | Our Marathon), was live streamed via Google Hangouts: https://plus.google.com/events/c4u298e4lptk9klhg1fla1aomns
TAPAS would like to thank UConn for hosting us. And a special thanks to Anna Kijas (Lead Coordinator, Scholars Collaborative) for organizing the event and including our project.
