About

Class Project
The class will plan, develop, and present a digital humanities project for an exhibit, archives, and teacher’s resource guide to supplement the Tom B. Murphy exhibit that will be unveiled at the UWG Ingram Library in the fall of 2011. This exhibit was developed and will be installed to commemorate Tom B. Murphy’s influential political career as one of the nation’s longest serving legislative speakers. The class will work closely with Catherine Hendricks who is managing the exhibit for the Ingram Library. Students will be divided into teams, and each team will complete specific tasks for a digital humanities project developed by the class. This team approach is the process by which all exceptional examples of digital humanities projects are accomplished. This class project will offer insight into the numerous facets involved in creating digital humanities projects and provide hands on experience in the field that can immediately build your resume. The team areas are listed below. More specific responsibilities and tasks will be provided to you. I will adjust the teams and responsibilities, based on the number of students enrolled in the class and the individual expertise of students enrolled in the class.
