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 […]

Spring Breaking and Catching Up: end/line Group Post

With spring break now over, we’re focused on prioritizing all the work required to get a minimum viable product ready by the end of the semester. In our last class prior to the break, Hannah and Jeremy offered some helpful feedback on end/line as it exists now. Coming from a computer science background, Hannah provided […]

end/line week 6 reflection

This week was a bit of a rush to the end in terms of making sure Brian had everything he needed to start making all of the connections on the backend. A few pages had to be cleaned up, some information had to be added, and results pages had to be skeletoned out so they […]

end/line Weekly Diary: 2 April

After our group meeting with Kate Singer, discussed in this week’s group post, the remainder of the week has involved a good deal of housekeeping as project director and project manager. The community management and development teams continue to work, mainly, in their own spheres, so I’m trying to stay up-to-date with both. Iuri has […]

Group Post, end/line

This past week were able to break out from the classroom, slightly, when we spoke with Kate Singer from Mount Holyoke. Kate will serve as an advisor to end/line, and her comments, questions, and suggestions on Wednesday granted us some new perspectives on our work thus far. After we introduced ourselves, discussed our roles, and […]

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 5 reflection

We’re finally approaching the final stretch for the initial prototype layouts. This week saw two upgrades: a list of aesthetic changes and information page changes from the group, and a few more skeletons to be fleshed out for the rest of the site. It’s really coming together and it’s nice to slowly see the initial […]

end/line Weekly Diary: 26 March

While community management and development work has continued, per plan, on end/line, I’ve started to feel some anxieties about the reception and humanistic purpose of this project. First, as Iuri explains in his post on the subject, not only are there many TEI projects but there are also a fair amount committed to poetry and […]

  • 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
