“Managing Collaborative Humanities Projects: 10 Lessons from Digital Humanities”
Drawing on the instructor’s 15 years of digital humanities practice, this workshop will consider both the practical, day-to-day work and the intangible aspects of managing collaborative projects and organizations. Pragmatic lessons will include picking projects, building partnerships and engaging stakeholders, attracting funding, budgeting and staffing, setting milestones and meeting deliverables, managing staff, publicity and marketing, user support, sustainability, and the range of tools available to support this work. The workshop will also consider several harder to pin down, but no less important, aspects of management, including communication, decision making, and leadership.
