We’re back, and with a new look!

Our new logo!
Although the Southern California digital humanities community has remained busy, the DH SoCal blog had to take a bit of a hiatus, but we’re back! And with a new look! Thank you to Liz Losh (@lizlosh from UCSD) for our new logo and header graphic, and to Colleen Greene (@colleengreene from CSUF) for our refreshed blog design.
Take a look around the new site organization to familiarize yourself with how to post to our blog, calendar, jobs list, CFPs, people directory, and project directory.
Anyone from the SoCal DH community, or with an interest in digital humanities in Southern California, is welcome to join our site and network. Learn more about Connecting with us!

Welcome!

After learning after the fact about a digital humanities event at another campus that I would have liked to have attended for the umpteenth time, I decided to create a central clearinghouse for event announcements and a site for virtual conversations related to digital humanities for students and scholars living in southern California. I’ll be sending out invitations to contribute shortly. If you would like to be involved in posting announcements or participating in the conversation, let me know.
