Session Proposal: Undergraduates & DH Research

Inspired by Gregory Crane’s wonderful keynote earlier tonight, I would love to see a session on engaging undergraduates in digital humanities research projects. In my brief experience at the Northwestern University’s CSCDC, I’ve worked on a few digital humanities research projects and courses in which undergraduates have played key roles doing online manuscript transcription, web archiving, and creating original digital history projects. I think Gregory is right (for a number of reasons) that it is time to bring undergraduates into the research process, and the digital humanities offers so many ways in which to do this. No doubt, this is a broad topic, but I’m assuming other people have similar experiences to share or are thinking about how best to begin down this path.
