Description

Whether it is a blog post, a journal article, a Hypothes.is comment, or a README.md file, writing is a fundamental digital humanities and digital scholarship activity. We encourage undergraduates to pursue DH to improve their technology and research skills, but often neglect to include writing in the list of transferable skills. Encouraging students to write in public asks them to think about themselves as contributors to ongoing conversations about the critical use of technology. Far from presenting public writing as a utopian ideal, by discussing copyright and licensing, professional identities, and more with our students, we can help them better understand the risks and affordances of the work we ask them to do. In this presentation, we will share several methods used in our DH program to help students build the skills necessary to publish writing on the Web.
