FSU's "Invisible Work in the Digital Humanities" Symposium

This two-day symposium attempted to identify the unspoken assumptions surrounding collaborative work in the digital humanities by exploring questions about diverging expectations, unequal labor, and invisible work.


  1. Guests from around the country arrived in Tallahassee anticipating the start of the Symposium on Thursday, November 17th!

  2. FSU provided a live-stream of the keynotes to extend the discussion beyond Florida State. Conversations were collected on twitter using #IWDHFSU, to facilitate conversation with on- and off-site participants.

  3. Session One: Our lead facilitator Paul Marty, Professor in the iSchool, outlined the main topics of discussion and emphasized the importance of attendee participation throughout the event.

  4. Allen Romano introduced our first Keynote Speaker, Dr. Mark Algee-Hewitt. Mark discussed the Invisible Lab and Diverging Expectations, and caused a buzz of questions and comments on Twitter.
