    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: By asking her students to produce a “hashtag syllabus” over the course of her Blackness in the Post-Civil Rights Era class, Lauren Perlman brings a powerful contemporary scholarly form into the classroom. As Lisa A. Monroe explains in “Making the American Syllabus: Hashtag Syllabi in Historical Perspective,” a hashtag syllabus is a crowdsourced reading, viewing, and discussion list that arises in response to a social moment or event, collated using social media hashtags. Monroe also historicizes the hashtag syllabus in a larger intellectual tradition of community-member-driven scholarship. Indeed, much as hashtags help students collaborate and communicate outside the classroom, Pearlman’s assignment demonstrates how student participation can help make the scholarly work of various communities more visible and accessible. Her assignment also offers links to a variety of recently curated hashtag syllabi and commentaries thereon, such as the “#CharlestonSyllabus,” “#immigrationsyllabus,” and the “#FergusonSyllabus.”
