2015 — The talking (& a bit of making)

As the end of the year approaches it’s time to take stock with my annual talking/making summary. This was a year of change. In March, I started combining my work at Trove with a part-time appointment at the University of Canberra. I think there’s a great need for joint appointments between the cultural sector and academia, but juggling two part-time jobs has been a struggle. As much as I love Trove, I’m finishing up at the National Library of Australia at Christmas time and heading into 2016 looking for new challenges!

2015 was a big year for talking, with DH2015 an obvious highlight.

It’s been a bit of a frustrating year on the making front — just didn’t seem to have the time or energy to pursue the projects I was interested in. But I did have a bit of fun with faces and ASIO files…

There’s various other updates and unfinished stuff on GitHub. I hope to expand on a few of these projects in the new year.

I’ll still be at the University of Canberra, working on developing some new teaching possibilities around digital cultural heritage. Get in touch if you’re interested in pursuing postgraduate research!
