Introduction and goals
Digital Humanities projects come in many forms, rely on a wide array of data types, and involve any manner of technologies. In this assignment, you will critically examine the goals, methods, and materials behind a DH project. Becoming accustomed to navigating a project site and exploring how each project approached its data, process, and presentation is a crucial skill for this class.
For this third project critique, you will evaluate one of the projects nominated by the class as good examples of a DH project in the Find a Digital Humanities Project assignment. That list is as follows:
- Shakespeare & Company Project
- Women Writers Project
- Closer to Van Eyck
- The Ancient Graffiti Project
- Endangered Languages Project
- American Prison Writing Archive
Make a copy of the Project Evaluation Template, rename it to include your last name, and fill it out, being sure to respond to each section. Don’t forget to insert your name, the title of the project, and the project’s URL at the top of the document. Turn in the Project Critique in Mattermost.
The Project Evaluation Template includes descriptions for each of the sections and question prompts. Be as thorough in your responses as you can. See the Project Evaluation Template Example for guidance.
