Showcase Your Undergraduates’ Digital Work at Re:Humanities – ProfHacker – The Chronicle of Higher Education

Showcase Your Undergraduates’ Digital Work at Re:Humanities – ProfHacker – The Chronicle of Higher Education.

This is an excellent example of what the digital humanities can offer undergraduate humanities students: the opportunity to participate in real knowledge-making through a peer-reviewed channel–an opportunity not usually offered to humanities undergraduates. This contributes to a long-needed shift in thinking in the humanities, in which peer-review and publication were reserved for the graduate student or Ph.D.  It also provides the opportunity to accomplish real work in cooperation with others.

Overcoming barriers to the digital humanities in liberal arts colleges

As an umbrella term for many kinds of technologically enhanced scholarly work, DH has built up a lot of brand visibility, especially at research universities. But in the context in which I work, it seems more inclusive to call it digital liberal arts (DLA) with the assumption that we’ll lose the “digital” within a few years, once practices that seem innovative today become the ordinary methods of scholarship.

No More Indiana Jones Warehouses – Do Your Job Better – The Chronicle of Higher Education

The digital humanities, or “DH,” encourages scholars and students to use the Internet to present their work to a global audience. There’s no guarantee that the world will beat a path to your online project, but at least it’s available, and updatable. It’s not a moribund, bound manuscript shelved in a university library’s off-site storage warehouse.
