Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will be able to use the PressForward WordPress plugin to aggregate and curate material from the open web, and consider important issues in developing community-based publications.


The development of the PressForward plugin and the prototype publication Digital Humanities Now offers a test case in the management of new forms of scholarship while exposing the ways that technological innovations can both highlight differences between researchers and foster collaboration and resource-sharing among interested users.
