Writing with DH Tools

I want to start off by saying that I’m very much looking forward to my first THATCamp, particularly given the range of interesting proposals so far and because I’m quite new to the digital humanities field and excited to learn about how others have used and benefited from its methods and tools.
I would be interested in a general discussion session on using digital humanities tools for the practice and teaching of scholarly writing. What digital resources have you used to enhance your own writing practices? What specific issues–whether scheduling, goal-setting, revising, sharing, etc–would you want to learn more about, implement, or even design?  What tools have you or would you like to introduce to student writers? What writing assignments have you developed using DH tools?


About the author


I recently received my Ph.D. in English and am currently a Visiting Lecturer in the Writing Program at Wellesley College. I incorporate technology into my classroom and writing/research assignments in a variety of ways (e.g. Moodle, Sakai, Zotero, PowerPoint), but am looking for ways to expand my use of digital media in my teaching as well as my research practices.

    Thanks for posting!
