What are the different types of digital scholarship, and how should they be evaluated? With these questions in mind, Jentery Sayers (Dissertator, English; HASTAC Scholar) looks at example web-texts and hypermedia from two e-journals, Kairos and Vectors. Sayers will then transition to a facilitated group conversation about digital scholarship, broadly speaking. Ideally, the conversation will focus on three topics related to the current state of digital scholarship, namely expertise, storage, and design, by stressing who should be involved in the evaluation process, where/how digital scholarship should be deposited, and what certain interfaces afford (and don’t afford) their intended audiences.
