In 2018, Humanities Commons honored one of the most time-honored traditions of the season: summer camp. We hosted a virtual summer camp for users old and new. It helped participants to update, build, and achieve an outstanding digital presence through HC. Please check out the discussions from Summer 2018 to see the fantastic work and thought-provoking conversations that our participants took part in last year.
In 2019, we hosted two Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshops. These events encouraged you to set aside time to update your digital presence on HC. The group is a space to ask questions, connect with other users, and see the various exciting ways that other scholars use HC to build their presence online.
You can use these materials as you update your presence on the Commons.

This is the syllabus I’ve designed for my Fall 2019 undergraduate-level Introduction to Film course. I focused the course as a genre study of American horror films. I want my students to be able to consider the socio-political contexts of popular films and to detect and explain the arguments and worldviews produced by film.
It’s day four of the second Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop session, and we’re focusing on updating and creating HC sites!
Why should you build and maintain a site through HC?
Humanities Commons allows users like you to build wordpress sites that are linked directly to their HC profile page. Once you create a site, a link to your…[Read more]
Welcome to the third day of the second Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop! Today we’re focusing on the CORE Repository.
The importance of taking time to refresh your digital presence through CORE is twofold. First, we hope that a greater awareness of the open access materials available in the CORE Repository will help you to locate helpf…[Read more]
Welcome to Day 2 of the second round of the Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop! I hope you all had a chance to update your profile pages yesterday, but if not, feel free to move through this workshop at your own pace. Today we’re going to focus on HC groups. Joining and participating in groups is vital to taking full advantage of the net…[Read more]
Hi all! I’m looking forward to refreshing my Commons presence this week. Despite working on some aspect of Humanities Commons almost every weekday, my own profile had gotten somewhat outdated. I’ve added some recent publications and reworked my “about” statement slightly.
I’ve followed a few new people as well. I want to highlight one of the…[Read more]

This post, written following the announcement of Plan S, reflects on the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and the call for responsible use of research metrics and recognition of open research practices in assessment.
In my final International Open Access Week 2018 blog post I reflected on other open research practices, namely open data and open researcher contributorID (ORCiD).
As part of International Open Access Week 2018 I blogged about how Altmetrics can help an author understand the readership and audience for their Open Access research. It can be surprising what breadth a single piece of work can have.
I hope your time between summer refresh workshops is going well! I wanted to let you know about another summer project @caitlinduffy49 and I have organized: the Humanities Commons Twitter conference, Making Connections. It is currently underway! Follow along on the hashtag, #HCTwitterConf19. We plan to organize the presentations as…[Read more]
@irinasadovina Welcome to HC! I look forward to speaking with you more in August! 🙂 In the meantime, please let me know if you have any questions as you build on HC.
Hi Kristen! I’ve linked Brandon Locke’s profile to that deposit. Currently, members can email hello [at] hcommons.org to request additional authors’ profiles get linked to a CORE deposit. In the future, we plan to have the option for members to do this themselves! Thanks for the question.
Hi, I’m being a bit late by sneaking this post in today. But I just wanted to echo the thanks already made to Caitlin for hosting this camp and providing us with this great opportunity to learn and reflect.
As a complete newbie to HC I found the whole week to be useful. Highlights though have included –
- finding groups of like-minded…
Hi all-sorry for the late post (I had family in town all day yesterday).
Caitlin, thanks as always for organizing the Summer Camp. The questions that you pose are excellent ways to reflect on our professional practice. I’m sketching out some ideas over the next few weeks about how to incorporate HC work into one of my classes this term; work that…[Read more]
Caitlin, thank you so much for doing this work! I’m late to the boat; properly joined the Workshop today and am still figuring out my academic online presence.
I’ve only completed some tasks, but it’s a start. So I’m proudest of the bare minimum – having set up my profile at all. Step by step! Perhaps I’ll be back in August, to flesh out my p…[Read more]
I just got in and uploaded an article that I co-authored a few years ago (https://hcommons.org/deposits/item/hc:25255/). I have a question about co-authorship in CORE and how it works with author profiles: My co-author for this work was Brandon Locke, who has an HCommons profile (https://hcommons.org/members/brandontlocke/). But when I see the…[Read more]

If you were able to participate in this round of #…[Read more]
Thanks to @caitlinduffy49 for inviting me to moderate today’s discussion. In addition to everyone’s posts and responses to Caitlin’s questions and prompts, I’ll offer that thinking about your profile and sites should be an ongoing process. Just as creative or analytical writing is a form of knowledge formation/construction,…[Read more]
