26. Digital Medievalist

OUCS staff member Dr James Cummings has been re-elected to the position of Director of Digital Medievalist. Digital Medievalist is an international web-based community encouraging good practice in digital resource creation for medieval studies. It was established in 2003 to help scholars meet the increasingly sophisticated demands faced by designers of contemporary digital projects. Digital Medievalist runs a website, open access peer-reviewed journal, email discussion list, wiki, newsfeed, and is also on Facebook and Twitter.

Membership in Digital Medievalist is freely open to anyone with an interest in Digital Humanities or Medieval Studies, without regard to skill or previous experience in these areas. Participants range from novices contemplating their first project to many of the pioneers in the field. The email discussion list is the perfect place to ask any questions of a Digital and Medieval nature.

Digital Medievalist is hosted at the University of Lethbridge in Canada, and overseen by an international executive of medievalists with extensive experience in the use of digital media.
