Projects Underway

  • "Undergraduate Showcase" (produced by Kristin Cornelius, California State University, Northridge)

"Undergraduate Showcase" (with a section called the "First-Year Feature"), at CSUN is a preliminary start to our work for this group. I realize there are a few different project ideas in our group, so I thought I'd keep everyone updated on my progress with my project at CSUN, and then if is interested in doing something similar at their institution, they can let me know and we can make this one idea inter-institutional. 


CSUN's "Undergraduate Showcase" seeks to bring attention to the digital work being done by undergraduate students at CSUN. CSUN's new Center for the Digital Humanities' website will host a section called "Undergraduate Showcase" that will provide links and brief descriptions of five exemplary student projects, with a sub-section called "First-Year Feature" that will highlight the best project done by a first-year student. Below you'll find more details in the copy of the email we sent out to our department for submissions:


The CSUN College of Humanities currently offers several courses that facilitate the creation of digital projects by students, including the different levels of freshman writing that comprise the new Stretch curriculum. In order to provide public recognition for the exemplary work being done by CSUN students, the Center for the Digital Humanities (http://www.csun.edu/digitalhumanities/) is creating an “Undergraduate Digital Showcase” for the best student projects. The program is being undertaken as part of the Humanities Undergraduate Outreach Project of the 4Humanities initiative (http://humanistica.ualberta.ca/), a multi-institution consortium that advocates for the Humanities.


The Undergraduate Digital Showcase will display five of the best student projects on the Center for the Digital Humanities web site, and the showcase may also be duplicated on the 4Humanities site. A “First-Year Feature” subcategory will highlight the most outstanding digital project by a first-year student on a subject in the Humanities or a closely related field. All formats are accepted, and projects can either be individually or collaboratively authored. Projects must be nominated by a faculty member.


We are now accepting nominations of student projects completed for any course in the College of Humanities during the 2011-2012 academic year. To nominate a student project from one of your classes, please e-mail the student name and the project URL, or send the project as an attachment if it is not web based) to Scott Kleinman, Director of the Center for the Digital Humanities (scott.kleinman@csun.edu). Please check that your students agree to having their work made public in the showcase before nominating their projects. The deadline for nominations is May 15th, 2012.
