    Book description:

    The term ‘Digital Humanities’ is ubiquitous yet ambiguously defined. Unfamiliar vocabulary and uncertainty about where or how to begin a DH project are the greatest barriers for many humanities students and faculty who wish to explore and present their research using digital tools and methodologies. This textbook will offer clear guidelines and best practices for planning and implementing such a project, following the work flow from initial planning stages through to completion. Core topics will include data curation and management, choosing a digital platform, working with teams, and tools for analysis and visualization. The work flow is based on quarter-long introductory classes in Digital Humanities created and taught by the author.

  • Hello! I’m a trained copy editor & proofreader, & I have a professional interest in DH projects. Please let me know if you’d like a hand!

    Thanks @gesina.a.phillips, sounds like you’d be perfect for this project! We’re still in the authoring stage so not quite ready for proofreading and copy editing yet, but we will definitely be in touch when we get to that point. Thanks again for the offer.

  • That’s great, thanks @zoe! Just get in touch when you get to the point that another set of eyes is useful.

  • Hello- I’m interested in providing proofreading for this project. I have a master’s in library and information science (and completed a class in digital libraries) and an undergraduate degree in media studies. I’ve also had proofreading and copyediting jobs. Please let me know if I can contribute. -Mary Brunskill
