end/line: the last weeks

The choice to separate community management and technical developement of end/line has been very useful: in this way, these two aspects – both fundamental – worked in parallel, reaching their goals. The technical developement team did an excellent job in the last weeks: both Brian and Greg contributed to build an app that could now […]

end/line week 10

We are approaching to the end of the semester, so – as it is logical – we are starting to think about the requirements we have to complete for the class. This class, being a kind of unicum, will allow us – for this semester – not only to work together for all the semester, […]

end/line: week 9

Spring Break was necessary to put together our thoughts about end/line development and to better define the technical features and the graphical aspect of our app. Indeed, on April 20th we hosted our first beta test, so it was necessary to set up a beta version of end/line that works at its best. The test was […]

end/line: week 6

During last class, we had for the first time the opportunity to receive a feedback from a person not as involved as us in the development of our app, end/line. Of course we have received other feedbacks previously, but they were either indirect (such as the testers we tried to involve through call for participations, who […]

end/line: week 5

Last week, I focused mainly on the draft of the invitation letter we will send to the beta testers of end/line with the information about the date and the modalities of the test. This task is not as simple as it could appear, because it requested to consider multiple and different aspects of the test […]

end/line: week 4

The discussion during the last week was close to the kind of expertise I provide for my team: indeed, me and Michael are responsible for the Community Management development of end/line. Last week’s readings emphasized the relevance of the image for a digital project, especially if the audience to reach is made of academics or scholars or […]

end/line: week 3

During the last class, we have been asked to focus on our data management plan, another fundamental step for the development of our digital project. Indeed, end/line is an app where users can upload poems in plain text, encode them following TEI Guidelines and finally compare their own encoding with other users. So, we will deal […]

end/line: week 2

During our last class meeting, we started to discuss about data management, trying to define which kind of datas we need to build our project and, also, sketching a first graphical, “concrete” draft of it by pen and paper. My duties are related to the Community Management of the project, especially considering the TEI Community. So, during […]

Let’s the adventure begins

The title of this post might sound provocative or, maybe, ironic: on the contrary, my intention is totally different. Indeed, I consider the building of the digital project I am involved in (“Encoding as Close Reading”, proposed by Tom) as an amazing adventure, unpredictable but surely unforgettable, If every digital project is a collaborative kind […]

Diary (02/19): The versatility of Digital Humanities

During the NYC Digital Week, I attended four different workshops, which offered me – one more time – the opportunity to touch the different potentiality offered by Digital Humanities tools. The first workshop I attended was “Sampling for the Digital Humanities”, offered on February 7th by Angus Grieve-Smith. Studies and researches into the Humanities can be very […]

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at
