JAH Starts Podcasting

The Journal of American History launched their podcast, “JAHcast,” this week.  Their initial podcast features John Nieto-Phillips speaking with James Meriwether about his article, “‘Worth a Lot of Negro Votes’: Black Voters, Africa, and the 1960 Presidential Campaign.”  This is a good first step for the journal to provide open access to research — I’d love to see JAH add panels from their annual meetings and other discussions to their podcasting service rather than center the show on a single article.  But it’s good to see  the journal engaging new digital technologies.

The Rise of the Digital Humanities

At Inside Higher Ed, Andy Guess uses the establishment of the Office of Digital Humanities to discuss the rise of digital humanities and the problems and potentials it has in academia. It’s a great introduction to our field, so be sure to give it a read.
