In order to respond in creative and responsible ways to exciting developments in digital scholarship, the AHA established a committee to produce a set of guidelines for the professional evaluation of digital scholarship. This document aims to provide departments and scholars with a basis for evaluating digital research and teaching. During this discussion, we will look closely at the guidelines and use them as an entry point into wider discussion of issues of hiring, promotion, and tenure related to the digital liberal arts.
 
Seth Denbo is Director of Scholarly Communication and Digital Initiatives at the American Historical Association. Seth majored in history at Middlebury College, and after graduating in 1990 he spent several years working in academic publishing at Routledge in New York and then London. He earned his PhD from the University of Warwick in England, where he worked on the cultural history of eighteenth-century Britain. After teaching for several years, Seth moved into digital humanities work, as part of teams developing innovative digital projects, first in the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London and then at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland. At the AHA he oversees the publication department and attempts to keep up with the changing landscape of digital scholarship in history and the impact of the digital age on scholarly communication more broadly.
