UM Press / HASTAC Publication Prize

June 18th, 2012

Together with Sheila Brennan, I’m honored to have received the University of Michigan Press / HASTAC Digital Humanities Publication Prize.

From the official announcement (at and the University of Michigan Press blog):

The University of Michigan Press and HASTAC (the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advance Collaboratory) are pleased to announce the selection of Jentery Sayers and Sheila Brennan as recipients of the UM Press/HASTAC Digital Humanities Publication Prize. Each Prize carries $5,000 in subvention funds and an advance contract with the Press series DigitalHumanities@digitalculturebooks ( . . .

Funded by the University of Michigan’s Institute for the Humanities, the UM Press/HASTAC Digital Humanities Publication Prize launched this year in conjunction with the HASTAC V conference hosted on the Michigan campus. Professors Brennan and Sayers were selected for their innovative and important projects advancing the field of Digital Humanities.

A big thank you to the University of Michigan Press as well as HASTAC for their support of How Text Lost Its Source: Magnetic Recording Cultures, which began as my dissertation project. In the near future, here I’ll post an update on the project’s trajectory toward book form.
