Author Workshops

Author workshops run two weeks in residence on the West Virginia University campus in Morgantown, WV. The author workshops run Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, with optional social events during the evenings and weekends. Authors will discuss readings and example texts while also putting their own projects into practice through dedicated lab time. All authors will leave the workshop with tangible progress towards their project. Multiple staff members will guide and help participants with their projects.


From Prototype to Published – June 4–15, 2018

Authors will participate in hands-on workshops that will help them complete their digital humanities projects. They will move from a work plan, prototype, or rough draft of their project to a final draft of a submittable project.

By the end of the two weeks, participants will have learned how to bring their projects to completion by:

  • designing their multimedia texts in ways that support their research question and technological needs
  • focusing on peer-review processes that also impact tenure & promotion issues
  • ensuring their technology and media choices are suitable for long-term sustainability
  • adding search optimization and metadata for accessibility and preservation purposes
  • and justifying their project to their home institutions and disciplines
