Critical Digital Humanities@Illinois: Women in Print, Value-added E-books, and New Digital Collaborations

Women in Print is a new peer-reviewed e-book series published by the University of Illinois that focuses on texts used in cultural history, gender studies, and literature courses. This is a “value-added” e-book designed to help students put these texts in context as they explore the physical book and its reception history. A truly collaborative project, Women in Print is the result of efforts by the Press, the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Art + Design, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, and scholars from around the country. Members of the collaborative team will speak briefly with slides and demonstrations of this critical digital humanities project before taking questions from the audience.

40 minute presentation, followed by questions and a champagne reception hosted by the University of Illinois Press and the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
