Collaborative Explorations in the Digital Humanities

Collaborative Explorations in the Digital Humanities
Friday, November 20, 2015 - 10:00am to 1:30pm

A Hands-On Workshop and Roundtable on Collaborative Scholarship in the Digital Humanities
As the tools and methods of the digital humanities become more specialized, increasingly scholars must turn to collaboration to approach what has commonly been considered solitary tasks, such as reading and interpretation.  This event, Collaborative Explorations in the Digital Humanities, organized by Mark Marino (USC Writing Program), offers a case study in collaborative reading, the book that collaboration produced, and a hands-on introduction to a new platform for collaborative digital scholarship. Join us for 2 events on November 20th at USC.
