Susan Brown (Alberta/ Guelph) of the Orlando Project (http://orlando.cambridge.org/) joined us today at the Defining Digital Humanities reading group to discuss the project, its inception, and on going work.  The informal discussion was wide-ranging involving how Orlando has grown over its nearly twenty years of existence, how it has maintained its online and scholarly presence, and what challenges Brown and other project directors have faced in keeping it afloat. Participants were particularly interested in Orlando’s method of data collation, the funding of graduate students, and its cyber-infrastructure arrangements.  In all, it was an extremely insightful and useful up close look at one of Canada’s leading Digital Humanities projects. We’ve very happy Susan was able to join us for the afternoon.
