Project Critique 3 (11/12)

(7% of overall grade)

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 the third project critique, choose one project to evaluate from the list of projects below:

Use the Project Evaluation Template to examine the project. In class, you will share your project evaluation as a presentation with slides (instead of turning in the filled out template document). Turn in your slides via Slack at the beginning of class. You will have 7 minutes to present on the project, and you should cover all of the sections of the Template in that time. You will be graded based on the information provided in the presentation, but any information included in your slides that you don’t get to in the presentation will help your grade.
