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.

The Shelley-Godwin Archive

The Shelley-Godwin Archive.

The Frankenstein manuscript comes alive in this digital archive!!

THIS is what the digital humanities is about, in my opinion. Big data is important, yes; but what really jazzes me is when materials that have been hidden away in museums and libraries make their public appearance in ways that are beautiful, useful, and open access!

New Gale digital humanities platform “Artemis” in the works

Gale Rolling Out New Platform To House Digital Humanities Collections — Campus Technology.

I have mixed feelings about this. While the platform sounds great, it is still placing these digital collections behind a pay wall, which goes against the principle of open access. Gale does have some fabulous digital collections, but you have to be a library to afford a subscription.
