I don’t want the blog to be purely for soliciting work, but inevitably finding some is my main preoccupation at the moment. I’ve been in touch with a number of digital humanists around the place, sent off a few CVs and received assurances that ‘things come up from time to time’. I have a couple of tentative leads, but nothing definite.
I know that that is DH-related work that I can do, because I did some in my last job. I’m sure there are pieces of work sitting around waiting to be done, and little pots of money to pay for them, but there isn’t anywhere really to advertise my services. I suspect a lot of these tasks get farmed out to local computing support – but wouldn’t it be good to have someone with a specialist knowledge of the humanities involved?
