Digital Humanities: Intersections in DH

Intersections in Digital Humanities

  • There are a number of intersections researchers of Digital Humanities must face in the design and development of digital projects. In this section, we've compiled readings and resources that expand the conversation around these intersections in the hopes that they be considered at the forefront of DH scholarship. If you have any other suggestions, please let us know!

Accessibility in DH

Tools/Resources:

As part of the 2017/2018 Digital Humanities Graduate Student Initiative, students in the MA in DH program hosted a conference on digital accessibility. The conference was broken into three morning sessions, a luncheon, and an afternoon edit-a-thon. The three morning sessions featured speakers and panelists who discussed topics such as universal design at the onset of digital resource creation, remediating and retrofitting existing digital projects to make them more accessible, and envisioning how institutions like Loyola move forward as creators of digitally accessible content. Following a catered lunch where “accessibility-aware” mentors assessed participants’ digital creations, an edit-a-thon ensued encouraging participants to work alongside accessibility professionals on making their digital projects and university department websites more accessible.The conference website and program can be viewed here: Digital Accessibility: Assessing, Amending, and Advancing Digital Content for All
