end/line — Week 12 Journal

Today’s the final day. I’ve been putting the finishing touches on things and figuring out exactly what I’m going to say at the presentation tonight. I still want to go through the code and put in some comments to make parsing it easier in the future, but there’s still time for that. Along with some […]

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 Weekly Diary: 14 May

Currently, I’m focused on preparing everything for our presentation on Wednesday. This past week, I built out a Google Slides template that incorporates our visual identity—it uses our color scheme, typography, and logo—and scaffolds the presentation by discussing its humanistic origins, providing a demo, and explaining the process of technology decisions and community building that […]

end/line blog 5/13

For the website, the last bit of code I had to make sure fit was the “How It Works” page. I figured out how to import TL’s YouTube videos through easy iframe embeds, but the challenge was getting it to play nice across screen resolutions. After a couple of different attempts and consulting the Bootstrap/jquery […]

This week’s in-class rehearsal went slightly better than the previous week’s.

ZUC – Looking Back

In making the presentation, I’m now having to look back and review some of the accomplishments – as well as goals – that the ZUC project had. The practice presentation showed me how important it is to really distill the major points of the project for maximum effect. I was having issues with actually deciding […]

end/line — Week 11 Journal

The last big thing to work on is making the XML validation script more robust. I’ve been trying to bring in official TEI XSDs and DTDs, but I’ve been running into some issues with getting the schemas to work. That might just have to do with my inexperience with those file formats, so I’m going […]

end/line weekly diary (week of 5/7)

At this point I’ve given up on figuring out which diary number this is, and I think I’ll settle with this. On my plate for this final week is working with Tom to get the How it Works page up and running using the template we have for it now, and finalizing how the demo […]

end/line — Week 10 Journal

Greg mostly covered what I’ve been working on in the last week. My main goal has been getting the inner workings of the site up and running. Most of it is tedious work at this point, to be honest. Do you ever think about how websites implement resetting passwords and sending account verification emails? It’s […]

  • 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
