Introduction and goals
Digital Humanities projects come in many forms, rely on a wide array of data types, and involve any manner of technologies. In this assignment, you will critically examine the goals, methods, and materials behind a DH project. Becoming accustomed to navigating a project site and exploring how each project approached its data, process, and presentation is a crucial skill for this class.
For this first project critique, everyone will evaluate the same project in class: Navigating the Green Book (http://publicdomain.nypl.org/greenbook-map/).
The Project Evaluation Template includes descriptions for each of the sections and question prompts. Be as thorough in your responses as you can. We will go over the template and discuss the sections during class.
Make a copy of the Project Evaluation Template, rename it to include your last name, and fill it out, being sure to respond to each section. Don’t forget to insert your name, the title of the project, and the project’s URL at the top of the document. Turn in the Project Critique in Slack as a direct message to Kristen by the beginning of class, Friday, October 22
Monday, October 18. If you thoroughly complete the template, then you will receive full credit for this assignment. Partially completed critiques will lose points.
