Digital Veterans Studies Projects in Research and Teaching

I taught a session today for the 2016 NEH Summer Institute on Veterans in Society: Ambiguities and Representations on digital projects for research and teaching in Veterans Studies. I had everyone in the group include a few favorite websites or tools they use, then showed off some of my own — the result was that I learned a heck of a lot (why did I not know more about CurateScape?), and I think we produced a good set of resources, which I share here for your edification. You can go directly to the document (but not edit it) at j.mp/2016-neh-veterans-digital. Thanks yet again, NEH!

Hypothesis and Scalar lesson plan

Usually I get the kind folks at Scalar to give one of their excellent webinars, but today I took a shot at teaching Scalar myself, along with Hypothes.is, in Quinn Warnick’s Introduction to Digital Humanities class. Thanks to Quinn for the opportunity and the help in planning! It was fun. Figured I’d share the Google Doc of the lesson plan here. Feel free to use, download, adapt, share, etcetera — you can get to the doc directly at j.mp/hypo-scal-lesson. I warn you, the lesson plan embedded here might change as I reuse it.
