Shannon Mattern on Maintenance and Care

Hi All — apropos of our discussion of infrastructure and materiality today, Shannon Mattern has just published a new article in _Places Journal_ titled “Maintenance and Care.” I think it will be of interest to many of you:

Maintenance and Care
A working guide to the repair of rust, dust, cracks, and corrupted code in our cities, our homes, and our social relations.

Caselaw Access Project

A large new open dataset was announced today:

The Caselaw Access Project (“CAP”) expands public access to U.S. law.
Our goal is to make all published U.S. court decisions freely available to the public online, in a consistent format, digitized from the collection of the Harvard Law Library.

Welcome to the course!

Welcome to the course site for DHUM 70000, “Introduction to the Digital Humanities.” Steve and I are looking forward to working with you this semester. We’ll use this site for our postings and will also make use of an associated course group on the CUNY Academic Commons.
