Here is the Google Doc for the Content Note session.
Could we design a project to use a (hypothetical) special collection of menus or cookbooks to find evidence of social change? Did restaurants change their menus after integration? How and when did various ethnic flavors and ingredients enter our experience? Is there a way to trace a culture’s understanding of ingredients and their cultural heritage? What is the relation of fusion cuisine to cultural authenticity? Could it be visualized? What other questions might we ask of such a collection and how would we display the findings on the web?
Here’s an idea that can pair with John Glover’s earlier post. I suggest that a group of folks each contribute 3 – 5 photographs currently on their smartphones to a group photo pool (Flickr?). We then break into smaller teams/pairs to create brief (five panel?) narratives using only the images available.
[Proposed by Nell Chenault.] It is a challenge to gather together publications, research, and information about the “New South”. Can a tool be developed to assist with this research issue? A portal or widget which focuses on many of the themes?
THATCampers, please join us at Balliceaux whether you could attend the workshop or not. We’ll be over there around 5:30 or so and should be the first big-ish group in the place.

Here is a map for the walk/drive to Balliceaux from the Academic Learning Commons (workshops). Right turn out of the building on Floyd Ave., right at the end of the block onto Harrison St., two blocks to a left turn onto Grove Ave; four blocks to a right on Lombardy; Balliceaux on the right.
Howdy, all. I’m looking forward to our Omeka workshop this afternoon. Here are the supplemental links and presentation slides for the workshop.
Note: this workshop is intended for beginners, so if you have lots of experience with Omeka this may be too basic for you.
Here are my in-progress presentation slides covering what Omeka’s all about, the basics of structuring sites, exhibits, etc.
We’ll be using omeka.net for the hands-on portion of the exercises.
Sites using Omeka: there are so many! Here’s a rabbit-hole of omeka sites:
Supplemental handouts – basic omeka how-to’s, cribbed shamelessly from Miriam Posner’s intro to Omeka workshop:

I’m planning a new version of an existing class that will focus on helping students understand and build their own digital identities (while learning about writing, oral presentations, argument, etc.). I have some ideas, but I want MORE. I’d love to talk with anyone teaching freshmen, in particular, but anyone working with undergrads to help them understand the best way to construct their online identity would be great. I’m especially interested in concerns about privacy, professionalism, and ways to talk to students about lifelong interaction with their new constructed digital selves–and, of course, new assignment ideas. See y’all soon!
