On Friday, September 6, PhD candidates Julia Damerow and Erick Peirson gave a joint presentation at the annual meeting of the international Digital History & Philosophy of Science Consortium at Indiana University. Their presentation, titled "Don't panic! Vogon 2.0: Products and Progress in the Sonoran Desert," gave a brief synopsis of recent work on the Genecology Project, Vogon, Quadriga, and the structure of the new ASU Digital Innovation Group. Two more ASU presentations, from Jane Maienschein and PhD candidate Erica O'Neil about the Embryo Project and other Digital HPS projects, will take place today (Saturday, September 7).
The meeting was attended by scholars from the UK, US, Germany, and France. The mission of the Digital HPS Consortium is to "develop, support, and promote digital HPS projects, including editing, publishing, and scholarly tools to make this possible. Insofar as possible, and recognizing the challenges and constraints, the Consortium is committed to open source and open access products."
