Sample Digital Humanities Student Project Work From Fall 2013

So, I’ve been promising to get this up for a few weeks now. Here are a few of the best projects from my Digital Humanities class in Fall 2013: Masterpieces of British Literature.  I’m really proud of my students; I think they did amazing, thoughtful, and insightful work. They poured their heart and souls into these projects. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have! As always, if you would like to know more about how I design my final projects, including handouts and other informational docs, don’t hesitate to ask! And do let me know if any of these links aren’t working. The Internet can be quite tricky.
