MAJOR PROJECTS RELATED TO DIGITAL HUMANITIES � Co-founder, 2010-present: 4Humanities - Advocating for the Humanities 4Humanities is a site created by the international community of digital humanities scholars and educators to assist in advocacy for the humanities. As a platform, 4Humanities stages the efforts of humanities advocates to reach out to the public. It solicits well-reasoned or creative demonstrations, examples, testimonials, arguments, opinion pieces, open letters, press releases, print Page 6 of 23

posters, video "advertisements," write-in campaigns, social-media campaigns, short films, and other innovative forms of humanities advocacy, along with accessibly-written scholarly works grounding the whole in research or reflection about the state of the humanities. As a resource, 4Humanities provides humanities advocates with a stockpile of digital tools, collaboration methods, royalty-free designs and images, best practices, new-media expertise, and customizable newsfeeds of issues and events relevant to the state of the humanities in any local or national context. � Project Director, 2008-present: RoSE (Research-oriented Social Environment) Software and Metadata Project Created as an outcome of the Transliteracies Project, RoSE is a Web-based knowledge-exploration system that fuses a social-computing model to humanities bibliographical resources to allow users to explore the present and past of the human record as one "social network." Stocked with initial information data-mined from YAGO and Project Gutenberg (with plans for data-mining the SNAC Project), RoSE provides profile pages about persons and documents, keywords and other data, and visualizations that help users see the relationships between people and documents. Uniquely, it also allows users (humanities students, scholars, and research groups) to add "thickly described" metadata on top of standard bibliographical data. This facilitates a social-network-like sense of active, dynamic interrelation with the objects of research. � Principal Investigator, 2005-2010: Transliteracies: Research in the Technological, Social, and Cultural Practices of Online Reading (University of California Multicampus Research Group, 2005-2010). Interdisciplinary project designed to study and develop innovations in the practices of online reading. Current special focus: "social computing" as a bridge between scholarly and public online reading environments. Funded initially by a $175,000 University of California Office of the President grant (plus $259,000 of University of California, Santa Barbara, cost sharing), the project includes among its participants 24 University of California faculty representing at least 11 different disciplines from 7 of the University of California general campuses. � Co-Founder, 2007-2010: UCSB Social Computing Group Co-founder (with Kevin Almeroth, Bruce Bimber, Jennifer Earl, Andrew Flanagin, James Frew, Miriam Metzger) of the UCSB Social Computing Group. Affiliated with the Transliteracies Project, the UCSB Center for Information and Technology (CITS), and the UCSB Credibility and Digital Media project, the Social Computing Group works on the new field of "social computing" that has emerged as a result of the increasing impact of social processes in the online documents of "Web 2.0." Particular topics of study include: social computing technologies, analytical and data-mining methods, information credibility (new socio-technological mechanisms of authority, quality, and trust), and collective action. The Social Computing Group organized a research workshop on May 30, 2008, involving extramural scholars, industry specialists, and others in the field. It is also writing grant proposals (including a NSF IGERT proposal) to start a graduate research and training program at UCSB on social computing. Page 7 of 23
