Making Hay: Lessons in Collaboration from One Week | One Tool
Digital Humanities projects are rarely blessed with abundant, or even adequate, resources. Staff, skills, equipment, and money are almost always tight. The experience of One Week | One Tool (http://oneweekonetool.org), an NEH Institute for Advanced Topics in Digital Humanities,demonstrates that time and resource constraints can be made to work in a project’s favor. First in 2010 and again in 2013,
One Week | One Tool brought together a diverse group of academic and cultural professionals to conceive, plan, build, and launch an open source software tool in only seven days. Despite, or perhaps because of, these strict constraints, both groups succeeded in releasing what have proved to be extremely well-used tools for humanities research: Anthologize and Serendip-o-matic. This talk will explore some of the lessons learned from One Week | One Tool for collaboration and project management in digital humanities and the academic work at large.
