Ready for another year of Digital Humanities! #backtoit

We have a new cast and crew, but we’re ready to get #backtoit. With five new DHAs joining us this year, you can expect we’ll be involved with quite a few projects this year; please look forward to it! And since we’re ready, a Spongebob meme seems appropriate:

Meme from a Spongebob Squarepants scene. Bouncer: Welcome to the Salty Spitoon how tough are ya? Bodybuilder: How tough am I? I once uploaded a hundred items' worth of media files to an Omeka site. Bouncer: Yeah so? Bodybuilder: One of the files was named "Pride&Prejudice #1.mp4 (2).png" Bouncer: Right this way
“Oh?… So you don’t need to hear about the… unstandardized name entry fields?”

(After all, in the end, a good portion digital humanities is figuring out how to present data in a way that hides just how messy it actually is—or was.)
