• Nicole,
    Thanks for covering this podcast!
    I love to see that more podcasts are offering their content in transcript-form, as well as the traditional podcast audio.
    I’m a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan, too! This season is already wild.

  • Hi Nicole,
    Thanks for covering this article!
    Thinking about how teachers make sure their work is accessible for all students is definitely a great group to look towards in determining how to best make our public humanities projects accessible.

  • Hi Raj,

    Thanks for covering this chapter, you did a great job of capturing McCormick’s major argument in a small amount of space!

  • Mostafa,

    Thanks for covering this article!

    I’d be interested to learn more about what the Black digital humanities might teach us about practicing public humanities.

  • Hi Thoraya,

    Thanks for covering this bonus reading!

    I’d be interested to learn more about how vidding is a way of studying (I had no idea it could be used in that way!) and also exactly how it can be used by public humanists to bring conversations out of academic and into the public arena.

  • Hi Rhiannon,

    Thanks for covering this article!

    Ecocriticism is one branch of humanities work, and it can be interdisciplinary, as it pulls a lot from environmental sciences (as you noticed in Gould’s blog!). If this is something that interests you, as an English major, you’re primed to join the forces of ecocritical scholars. Do you know…[Read more]

  • Raj,

    Thanks for covering this project!

    I think the ECDA is a great tool for everyone to keep in mind, especially those of you thinking of going into teaching someday – I can see the ECDA is a fantastic resource to share with students.

    I’d be interested to see what participation/engagement looks like for the ECDA, if it exists. Though, I…[Read more]

  • Hi Cesar,

    Thanks for covering this project!

    I’d be interested to learn more about how the public (or the faculty and students at University of Michigan) actually participate in this project. I’m also curious to know whether this project had any impact on the actual environment of their local community, or if they even were able to collect…[Read more]

  • Hi Chris,

    Thanks for covering this article!

    This seems like a great example of the democratizing potential that the Internet has- allowing the public to upload documents and other articles that are important to them, as opposed to only allowing those in power to completely control the narrative. Of course, we’ve recently felt the damaging…[Read more]

  • Hi Brenna,

    Thanks for covering this article!

    How might we connect this article directly to public humanities practices? What can we learn about public humanities through fan practices, such as the ones you describe here, like community building and meaning-making?

  • Hi Shannon,

    Thanks for covering this fascinating project!

    I’d like to hear more about the project accessibility – how does the project itself make sure that it is not only available, but also accessible? Did it use any of the Universal Design principles we learned about in Module 3?

  • April,

    Thanks for sharing this project!

    One correction- Emmett Till was accused by the white woman of offending her, but this was very likely a lie. In fact, she may have recanted her statement in 2017: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmett_Till#Claim_that_Carolyn_Bryant_recanted_her_testimony

    I love to see open-access digital museums…[Read more]

  • Hi Brittany,

    Thanks for covering this project!
    Because Frankenstein is old enough to be considered fair use, there are a lot of Frankenstein projects out there! If anyone is interested in creating a literary project, you might consider older texts as you’re free to use the actual text in whatever you create.

    As for this project, I…[Read more]

  • Hi Faith,

    Something else to consider here is that academics traditionally don’t get paid for publishing their work. The only people who financially benefit from publishing academic articles and putting them behind a paywall are the academic publishing companies. So I think most academics would be fine with the public accessing their work for…[Read more]

  • Hi Cesar,

    Thanks for covering this article!

    Your article will definitely be able to help any of your peers interested in designing a digital public humanities project proposal dealing with art.

    Festivals and museums can be virtual, and can be a great way to engage with the public online, even if you’re not designing a project that deals…[Read more]

  • Shannon,
    This is a great idea! Definitely build something that is connected to your passions and future goals.

  • Hi Leo,

    Thanks for covering this project!

    I especially like how you cover the Baltimore Uprising Archive’s radical potential, such as its ability to support and empower the community of Baltimore to create and share their own histories despite any sort of state gaslighting. The academics and project organizers mainly serve to organize and…[Read more]

  • Ziqing,

    Thanks for covering this project!

    When I first found Digital Asia, I was really impressed- I wished there were more open-access films out there with pop-ups. I think this would be really helpful for teaching, but also if I ever wanted to learn a bit more about a specific culture on my own. This seems like a really fun and accessible…[Read more]
