At the Digital Humanities@Oxford Summer School 2011 last week, I was invited to talk briefly about the multimedia features available in EPUB3. Not one to pass up an opportunity for public speaking, I quickly assented. The fact that the Summer School is organized in part by Oxford University Computing Services might have had something to do with it.
The slides from my presentation are available here.
I haven't been involved in the digital humanities before, but judging from the reaction to the demonstration, a little technology can go a long way.
