Final Reminders

I am very much looking forward to seeing all your work shine at the showcase next week! Here are some last reminders:

  • Feedback: take only what feels useful and doable from what Lisa and I said. All the presentations are already strong and compelling–anything you add or modify now will simply make it that much stronger
  • Slides: please email your slides to Filipa Calado ( by Monday at the latest. I’d appreciate it if you could cc me on the message.
  • Evaluations: with apologies in advance for the awkward timing, we need to complete student evaluations next week. I will post a digital copy of the file on our course group so you can print and complete it before hand and bring it with you on Tuesday. I do need a volunteer who is willing to walk the evaluations back upstairs after the showcase, so let me know if you would be willing to do so. More on that soon.
  • Please post final papers and personal reports to the site privately or publicly. The formal deadline is 5/21 but if you need extra time please make sure posts are published no later than Friday, May 24th.

Group Paper 15-20 pages (due 5/21)

  • Follow the guidelines for NEH final reports. Elements to address:
    • Project Narrative
      • Provide a detailed articulation of what are the project contributes to the given field. What critical intervention does project offer? Place it in context with references to articles and sources to situate your research within crucial conversations in the field.
    • Audience: Discuss in detail your audience and what they will learn/be able to do differently by engaging with your project.
    • Project Activities: Describe you initial Goals and Adjustments/Changes
      • In particular, revisit your Work Plan and address how well it reflects the development and completion of the project.
    • Accomplishments: describe the product/prototype you’ve created, its functionalities and affordances
    • Evaluation: If you had the project evaluated, describe responses and feedback you received, and how you accounted (or plan to account) for these responses. Assess the weaknesses and strengths of the project. How were problems addressed? What could have been done differently?
    • Future of the Project/Sustainability: what plans do you have for maintaining and expand the project moving forward? What are some foreseen challenges?

Personal Report Paper (3-5 pages)

  • Detail your contributions to the project: why did you join this team? What role did you play? How did that role evolve over the course of the semester? What were some challenges you faced, and how did you overcome them? What were some of your personal successes?
  • Explain how you see the experience of working on this project fitting into the arc of your professional development. How will this make you a better collaborator in the future? What are things you might do differently or more efficiently moving forward? In what ways do you think this prepared you to be a digital humanities scholar?
