The #DHattheCC Project: Digital Humanities Needs Community Colleges

Tawyna Ravy explica cómo y por qué considera interesante familiarizar a sus estudiantes con las herramientas de las humanidades digitales que facilitan el trabajo colaborativo. Presenta además excelentes ejemplos de recursos digitales como los que se ofrecen en PALS’ Digital Resources o el Mapping Police Violence Project y da cuenta de una serie de herramientas que pueden ayudar a los estudiantes a producir contenidos originales como Wordle, Voyant y Juxta que permiten estudiar textos; o ubicar en mapas eventos como Google Maps, Storymap o Myhistro y presentar colecciones o contenidos como Omeka y WordPress.

Welcome to Pedagogy & American Literary Studies

PALS Note: We are excited to have a guest post from Tawyna Ravy. Ravy is a PhD Candidate at George Washington University and an instructor at Northern Virginia Community College.  Ravy’s post is written in response to a question posed at the end of our recap of MLA panels on teaching with archives and the digital humanities. We asked if anyone who was an adjunct or non-tenure track professor had experience creating digital humanities projects with students. Ravy responded with some insights she gained in the community college classroom and through working with the Digital Humanities at the Community College (#DHattheCC) group. 

After attending the National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute on Implementing the Digital Humanities in Community Colleges last summer, I was determined to try my hand at teaching with digital humanities (DH) at my main campus, Northern Virginia Community College, where I teach primarily composition classes.
