Hi! I’m Scott B. Weingart, and I wear many hats.
You can read about my day job on my cv. Evenings and weekends are dedicated to family, adventuring, and the circus.
My work wanders between categories, but some highlights of efforts to which I have contributed follows:
- Books including The Network Turn (Cambridge University Press) and The Historian’s Macroscope (Imperial College Press), as well as a couple earlier digital-only volumes.
- Research articles spanning folklore (Fortier prize winning), philosophy, data ethics, science modeling, archaeology, biodiversity, history, networks, computer vision, web archiving, and others.
- Popular press pieces, including Vice’s The Route of a Text Message.
- Research software and platform development, including the Sci2 Tool, the Network Workbench, the Digits platform, and others.
- Many web-based projects, a small selection of which include Six Degrees of Francis Bacon, the Digital Humanities Literacy Guidebook, the ePistolarium, the Index of Digital Humanities Conferences, ETHOS, the Frankenstein Variorum, Shakespeare-VR, and the Internet Philosophy Ontology Project.
- Creative works, including an AI-assisted short story co-authored with Robin Sloan: the Center for Midnight.
- Frequent public lectures and keynote addresses, including at HASTAC, the Digital Humanities Forum, and elsewhere.
Before my current job, I directed the Navari Family Center for Digital Scholarship at the University of Notre Dame and a digital humanities program at Carnegie Mellon University. I’m privileged to have served as a treasurer of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations, as an Executive Council Member of the Association for Computers and the Humanities, as a member of the Library of Congress’s Copyright Public Modernization Committee, and on various other advisory boards.
