MemberJosé Nicolás Jaramillo Liévano

I’m a historian and podcaster from Bogotá, Colombia. I was at the DH2018 at Mexico City and won one of ADHO bursaries for the poster Digital Lorenzetti. Since then, with my colleague Elvis Rojas we made a podcast called Random Access History where we talk about History and its relation to Technology, Videogames, Pop Culture and Digital Culture. We’re interested in participating in this online version of DH2020 with the purpose of reviwing some conferences for our podcast. Also, I’m with the Colombia Network of Digital Humanities (Red Colombiana de Humanidades Digitales) where I’m the bursar.

DepositAsian American DH: Building Radical Communities through Justice-Oriented Praxis

This is an abstract for a proposed forum that would have been hosted at DH2020 in Ottawa. It brings together Asian Americanist faculty, librarians, and students to unpack and frame research, pedagogy, and praxis in both digital humanities and Asian American studies: What does Asian/Am DH look like? What form might a community of practice in Asian/Am DH take? How best can we support Asian Americanists, whose field is historically grounded in community organizing and activism, in applying DH methods to their scholarship? As we address these questions, we will foreground how Asian/Am DH, like other ethnic studies informed DH praxis, centers concerns of race, social justice, transnationalism, and community. Unfortunately, because of COVID-19 and the added challenges it brought, the facilitators decided not to host a forum at this time, and added a statement about our decision and the politics of the current moment.

DepositADHO DH 2020 long paper – The Semantics of Structure in Large Historical Corpora

Structuring large historical corpora that are too big to be processed manually can take two approaches. The first is an inductive method extracting implicit entities and meaning from textual (and sometimes visual) content. With the help of AI or manually compiled (existing) lists of entities, the entities are converted into information. The second, that Colavizza (2019) calls referential information systems, takes existing reference systems (like archival indexes) and uses them to contextualize individual documents. Both methods are used to turn corpora into computer accessible information systems. Ideally a more complete information system would result from combining both approaches, but in practice they are hard to bridge because of a number of different problems. This paper presents an approach that addresses those problems and combines inductive methods of automated text analysis and information extraction techniques with knowledge of the referential information systems to add rich semantic layers of information to large historical corpora.

DepositVisualizing Objects, Places, and Spaces: A Digital Project Handbook

Digital humanities are rich with publications, workshops, guides, and resource lists that introduce the field’s concepts and methods. As digital humanities have grown, trainings and materials for experienced practitioners have become prominent. Yet, as the authors have observed through their involvement with the National Humanities Center’s Summer Institute on Objects, Places, and the Digital Humanities, needs remain for resources that introduce anyone interested in creating a dh project to core methodological considerations and knowledge necessary to productively choose platforms and approaches that fit their research goals. This gap is especially apparent in fields dealing with visual materials and physical spaces, such as digital art history, where infrastructure for visual technologies varies. Visualizing Objects, Places, and Spaces: A Digital Project Handbook ( is designed to address that gap. This poster outlines the Handbook’s structure, reflects on the project’s own development process, and shares next steps. This poster was presented at the Digital Humanities 2020 virtual conference. (
