This summer, we’re hosting the Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop! #HCSummerRefresh will be held twice this summer, once from Monday, July 8th to Friday, July 12th, and the second time from Monday, August 5th to Friday, August 9th. Taking part in this workshop will help you to set aside time to update your digital presence on HC. It will also give you 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.
Last summer, 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.

@cgleek – Thanks for sharing these exam lists! I also really like your idea of encouraging more people to upload and share their exam lists and other graduate student documents. I now plan to upload my lists to CORE, though they’re also already up on my site (linked in case anyone wants to see them). Creating an HC group that specifically caters…[Read more]
It’s day four of the first Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop, and we’re focusing on updating and creating HC sites! Thanks again for the conversations happening in the previous days’ threads… let’s keep it going!
I’m a complete newbie to HC and CORE so spent some time searching the repository first. I loved finding so much stuff in there that interested me and led me down a cool rabbit hole of groups and people discussing these topics. One feature I’d like to see is an ability to bookmark items in CORE that can be saved in my profile to read later.
I then…[Read more]
One area I think that HC can help its members with is the sharing of readings/exam materials. Yes, we’re all interested in posting our working papers and articles, but there’s real value in emerging scholars posting their comps reading lists, as well as departments posting mock lists, expected PhD readings, and similar documentation. To this end,…[Read more]
Welcome to the third day of the first 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 help…[Read more]
So…groups have always been tricky for me. I tend to find that (in my areas anyway) that the volume of posting papers/etc. far outweighs the discussion (for the record, I’m equally culpable in publishing material rather than engaging in discussion). I regularly search for topics and groups in and around print culture, book history, and southern…[Read more]
Welcome to Day 2 of the first 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 n…[Read more]
Thanks, @ltyler and @cgleek, for sharing your thoughts! I really like Lisa’s idea of using time that I may have otherwise used procrastinating on social media on updating my HC profile. I’ll definitely use this method going forward!
I also agree with Charlie that the upcoming conferences section can be helpful in meeting and connecting with other…[Read more]
Excellent idea! I’m impressed with how much work you’ve uploaded to CORE. Over the next year I hope to work on contacting journals for permission to upload more of my published work.
Hi folks! Thanks for the thoughtful start to summer camp. While I’ve been working on my profile this summer in preparation for a soft entry onto the job market this fall, I overlooked the value of posting my upcoming conferences and invited workshops for the fall. As we consider the value of our profiles – not only as a showcase but as a tool to…[Read more]
The easiest way to find people who are working on topics of interest to you is to search for a particular topic and then click “members” under the “filter by” links (these appear on the righthand side of my laptop screen).
I recommend updating occasionally throughout the year–I update my page when I just can’t stand to grade one more paper. It’s a really good way to remind yourself of your accomplishments, which can make you feel better about grading those papers after all.
Welcome to the first round of the Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop, which will run from today, July 8th to Friday, July 12th. Each day, we will focus on a different component of your online professional presence and encourage each other to make any necessary updates. By participating in this workshop, you will give yourself a week set a…[Read more]
Caitlin Duffy started the topic What is the Humanities Commons Summer Refresh Workshop? in the discussion Humanities Commons Summer Camp on Humanities Commons 3 months, 3 weeks ago
I’m sure I’m not the only one that could use some time set aside to update my digital presence. Do you have any conferences, publications, projects, and/or teaching experience from this past year that you’ve yet to add to your HC profile? Do you want to learn more about how to effectively share this information on HC? Then please consider…[Read more]
This summer, the HC team is hosting Humanities Commons’ Summer Refresh Workshop online. While it will be similar to last year’s HC Summer Camp, Humanities Commons’ Summer Refresh Workshop will last just one week and will be held twice during the summer: once in July and a second time in August. Additionally, Humanities Com…[Read more]
I wanted to reach out to you on behalf of the Humanities Commons team because, as you may already know, we are organizing a Twitter conference this summer on July 18th. Based on the work you’ve all created and the discussions you’ve engaged in through the summer camp, I wanted to personally extend an invitation to you to submit a…[Read more]
Cyberpoésies d’engagement est une collection de deux poèmes numériques: Ifrikiya lève-toi! et Lettre aux Nations Unies. Bien que le dernier poème ait été publié sur Core, celui-ci reste la version définitive.
Lettre à Union Africaine est un poème numérique qui exprime la philosophie de la supranégritude. Il dénonce le joue de blâmer les Colons au lieu de diriger bien les citoyens.
Letter to the African Union is a digital poem which expresses supranegritude philosophy that denounces the game of pushing blame on colonial masters instead of working for the compatriots.
Cyberpoetry for activism is a collection of two digital poems: Arise Africa! and Letter to the United Nations. The later was published in this Core repository before the official publication date . The poems communicate justice and encouragement.
