Abstract: This paper presents my research investigating blogs in the digital humanities and their function as sociotechnical infrastructure for scholarly communication. While the digital humanities has roots in the computational processing of text, the landscape today is far richer and more complicated than early practitioners of humanities computing could have ever imagined (Gold 2012). Today, the digital humanities encompasses transformative methods of inquiry, new objects of inquiry, and potentially destabilizing shifts in scholarly publishing (Burdick et al. 2012). Such an assemblage of people, technology, and practice is understudied (Borgman 2009) and I argue a rich set of concepts and insights will emerge from a two way dialog between STS and digital humanities. Star’s call for an ethnographic approach to infrastructure (1999) sparked a suite of research into the previously understudied underbelly of scientific communications and practice. This research, while insightful, is methodologically challenging. Traditional ethnography does not easily scale when examining large scale, distributed, sociotechnical systems. As Bowker et al. point out “infrastructure studies require drawing together methods that are equal to the ambitions of its phenomenon” (2010, p.113). This paper examines digital humanities blogs as infrastructure for scholarly communication. It reports the results of a mixed methods study combining computational text mining of blogs with grounded theory for interpretation. This paper contributes to the ongoing and emerging fields of infrastructure studies by examining new phenomena, the digital humanities, and leveraging new methods for studying infrastructure, computational topic modeling.

The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 57th Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society, Hilton Riverside Hotel, New Orleans, LA, <Not Available>. 2018-04-21 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In this presentation, the Institute of International Education (IIE)’s Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF) will offer a general overview of its activities assisting scholars facing threats or danger in their home countries by providing them with temporary academic positions and a safe environment in which to live and work.

The purpose of the presentation is twofold: raising awareness of the challenges faced by scholars in nations under conflict and giving examples of the ongoing efforts these scholars have undertaken around the world to revitalize civil society and rebuild what has been singularly destroyed.

Drawing on data collected through decades of being in the field, this presentation will illustrate the Fund’s challenges and achievements. Examples may be anecdotal, but they are intended to bring a face to the conflict, to reflect on the soft power of the SRF fellowship recipients and their influence in pre- and post-conflict settings.

SRF will bring to the panel the perspective of those practitioners who struggle to protect academic freedom in challenging contexts. The work of SRF is not revolutionary or political. It is practical and reactionary. It is a resource of last resort for scholars who have attempted to ride a wave of repression, persecution and violence but see ultimately no other way to protect themselves and advance their academic ideals.
