#DietDH Resumed

To begin the spring readings for #DietDH, part of the University of Delaware Digital Humanities Community, is Disrupting the Digital Humanities by Jesse Stommel. Jesse Stommel shares his perspective of why it is important to consider beyond the academic disciplines and fully include people and communities within digital humanities. He relates to his experiences with the disciplines that he is part of and defines pedagogy to include broader open spaces (that also includes a diverse range of voices – hybrid voice). His definition is “Pedagogy is praxis, the place where philosophy and practice meet.” I view Jesse Stommel’s definition of pedagogy as an understanding of how these outcomes or process (whether socially successful or not) of praxis can be made public, since many disciplines do have some sort of research base or presentation of work within a specific community.  The inclusion of a community response offers another level of knowledge in the continual development of the digital humanities.

In one of my previous blog posts, I mentioned Popularizing Research, which demonstrates some of the similar concepts mentioned in Disrupting the Digital Humanities.
