Digital Writing


Digital writing has challenged many notions of the act of writing itself, from the definition of text to the understanding of audience. Most importantly, digital writing questions the notion of single authorship: whether you use Classroom Salon to collaboratively annotate a text or Zotero to collaboratively collect and cite sources.

At The University of Tromsø, I am excited to share some thoughts on the public digital humanities in a presentation (slides linked here) titled “The Public Digital Humanities: New Ways of Writing in Community.” I look forward to learning more about ways that digital tools are transforming your writing! Please check out the links below for more information.

Some of my favorite digital tools:

Classroom Salon: social text annotation

Google Drive: web-based authoring

Story Maps: geography-driven storytelling tool

WordPress: easy website building tool

Zotero: seamless source citation

Some of my favorite digital projects:

18th Connect


Digital Dubliners

HASTAC: an online community of digital humanists. Of particular interest is the HASTAC Scholars Program.

Mapping the Republic of Letters

The Passport Project
