Session Description:

This electronic roundtable assumes that "building stuff" is foundational to the digital humanities and that the technical barriers to participation can be low. When teaching undergraduates digital humanities, simple tools allow students to focus on the simultaneous practices of building and interpreting. This show-and-tell presents projects of variable technical complexity that foster robust interpretation.


Subjects:

  • General Literature – Electronic Technology (Teaching, Research, and Theory)

  • The Teaching of Language and Literature – General
