What a brilliant talk from Dr. Melissa Terras from the Centre for Digital Humanities of University College London:

Dr. Melissa Terras: The Vision After the Sermon

  • Maintain high visibility – attend events, reach out
  • Invest the time
  • Invest the resources
  • Get institutional backing

The video is really worth a watch. Among the many gems is this poster promoting the Centre (this falls under “visibility”):
