This series looks phenomenal and I and my colleagues and Bowdoin would really enjoy watching these. Has the first hangout been archived somewhere? And will the others? Thanks!

Thanks so much, Cathy. These conversations are incredibly interesting and so needed.

I and my new colleague at Bowdoin, Crystal Hall (http://www.hastac.org/users/chall), will definitely tune in to the final hang out. She's an expert on Galileo and does wonderful dh work on his poetry and scholarship. She's also working on hatching a digital and visually-satisfying experience of his library! Quite fun.

See you on the hang outs soon!
