Laura Sanders deposited Where Does Evidence Come From?: Crowd-Sourced Digital Archive DH/CBL Project for Students at Two-Year Institutions on MLA Commons 6 years, 11 months ago
Combining my passions for professional development and social justice, I continue to seek the sweet spot between digital humanities and online community-based learning. DH is particularly exciting for students at two-year, open access institutions because it has the potential to level the playing field as well as to give under-represented communities a voice and the opportunity to offer their own narratives to counter those presented in dominant culture. In this assignment, I ask my writing students to consider more deeply how knowledge is constructed and on whose terms through a reflection paper on their experiences with crowd-sourced digital archives.
