Title: Planning and Implementing a Digital Humanities Project
Lead Author: Sarah Ketchley (University of Washington) / @ketchley

Target Audience: Humanities Graduate Students & Faculty
Subject: Digital Humanities/Project Management
Target Release Date: TBD
The term ‘Digital Humanities’ is ubiquitous yet ambiguously defined. Unfamiliar vocabulary and uncertainty about where or how to begin a DH project are the greatest barriers for many humanities students and faculty who wish to explore and present their research using digital tools and methodologies. This textbook will offer clear guidelines and best practices for planning and implementing such a project, following the work flow from initial planning stages through to completion. Core topics will include data curation and management, choosing a digital platform, working with teams, and tools for analysis and visualization. The work flow is based on quarter-long introductory classes in Digital Humanities created and taught by the author.
We are currently look for collaborators to help with:
- Proof reading
- Chapter reviews
- Formatting in Pressbooks
- Performing accessibility checks
- Promoting adoptions in classrooms
