As we discussed during seminar, the formal review of digital tools, online collections/exhibits, and multimodal scholarly communications is relatively rare. However, the genre is emerging, and writing such a review is no doubt a worthwhile exercise for practitioners of digital literary studies. So here goes . . .
For you to:
- Closely examine and evaluate a digital project,
- Reference and assess specific elements of that project,
- Practice writing in a genre intended for an academic audience, and
- Transfer the study of a digital project to the development of your own project-based work.
What You Should Include in Your Response
Select a digital project that’s academic in character. Here, a “project” may entail—for example—a tool (e.g., Voyant), an exhibit/collection (e.g., the Deena Larsen Collection), or a multimodal book/article (e.g., Learning from YouTube).
Before seminar on Thursday, March 1st, write a formal review of the project (750-1000 words + screenshots / screencasts) in Scalar. Write for an academic audience (e.g., digital humanities practitioners) that includes the people who actually produced the project you selected. Your review need not be restricted to a single page in Scalar.
As per usual, the first person who responds will need to convert the Scalar page into a path.
Get in touch with questions, especially if you would like me to approve your project prior to review.
