How to Join
For the third year in a row, we're thrilled to announce 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 Wednesday of each month using the hashtag #DHReads21.
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.
