How to Join
The MSU Libraries Digital Scholarship Lab is excited to launch a summer virtual reading group exploring current trends and conversations in Digital Humanities. From May through August, we'll be looking at four exciting pieces published this past year. We'll focus on one article and one online resource per month, using the annotation tool Hypothes.is. We'll conclude our monthly annotations with a 3-5pm EST Twitter chat on the last Monday of each month using the hashtag #DHReads20.
Anyone is welcome to participate! To join the conversation, follow the following instructions:
- If you currently have Hypothes.is set up, skip to step 4. Otherwise, navigate to https://hypothes.is/
- Click the "Get Started" button.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to create a free account. If using Google Chrome, install the Hypothes.is extension. If you prefer a different browser, install the Hypothes.is bookmarklet.
- You're ready to go! Follow this link to join the summer reading group: https://hypothes.is/groups/qBzx6LiD/dhreads-2020
Hypothes.is will allow you to comment and highlight works, as well as respond to others' annotations. If you have any questions, please message on Twitter @motolibrarian, or by email at andyjp@msu dot edu. Thanks for joining; we look forward to reading with you!
