The Digital Humanities Class Development Project

FAIN: AH-274068-20

Marist College (Poughkeepsie, NY 12601-1387)
John Ansley (Project Director: May 2020 to present)

 Continued employment of archivists, librarians, and faculty, to develop a digital humanities project.

The main goal of the Digital Humanities Class Development Project is to create an on-line digital humanities course for undergraduates that will be shared on Creative Commons (a repository for a wide-range of creative works that are legally shared with any interested parties). The course will be designed to be taught over a traditional semester (14 weeks), but will be flexible enough to be edited or condensed by the instructor to fit a non-traditional semester.
