    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Lower-division literature majors are new to devising substantial research projects. Katherine D. Harris’s “Collaborative Project on 19th-Century Materials” expertly introduces students to the materiality of textual scholarship, then trains students in project management, a vital skill for any digital humanities collaborative project. Harris uses the Association of American Colleges and Universities Teamwork VALUE Rubric to ground students’ attention in specific tasks they must perform to advance the larger project. As they toggle between the embodied classroom space and work in Google Docs, students assess the rare text’s material attributes and then move to questions of content and interpretation. One resulting research paper, about Louisa Henrietta Sheridan’s The Comic Offering: Satire without Bite, is seamless, univocal prose. This assignment allows for interface comparison as students juxtapose the materiality of rare texts against the pervasive, on-demand availability of Google Docs.
