For the Right to Look: new blog

Having just finished a long book project, The Right to Look: A Counterhistory of Visuality, I’ve started a new blog where I’m going to think about the issues raised by the book and its development for visual culture, cultural studies and the digital humanities. I’d very much welcome your opinions!

DH2009 and THATcamp

The coming week promises to be a flurry of activity; I’m heading east early tomorrow morning to begin a week of conferencing in the DC area. The week begins with Digital Humanities 2009, hosted by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, College Park, followed by THATcamp 09, hosted by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. I’ll hope to post from those venues, where I’ll be talking about MediaCommons and issues related to digital scholarly publishing; if you’re there, be sure to say hello.
