Abstract:

"Scholars of nineteenth-century American literature have been at the forefront of digital humanities scholarship with several of the most successfully funded and publicized digital projects, including The Walt Whitman Archive, the Emily Dickinson Electronic Archive, and the Melville Electronic Library. This collection brings together several scholars who are foundational to the development of digital humanities and to the building of nineteenth-century American digital archives alongside scholars who have made digital methods central to their pedagogy. Here they write about their pedagogical practices, focus on specific tools that are available to teachers and scholars, and share their resources and inspirations for the American literature classroom. Essays in the collection consider how to both use and build digital projects and how to incorporate into the curriculum already established digital materials pertaining to the study of the period"--
