Open-Assembly Teaching, Making, and Publishing: COVE Editions and Studio

June 3 8:00 am June 7 5:00 pm PDT

Are you looking to build a peer-reviewed, open-access critical edition, gallery, or anthology–without any coding? Are you interested in collaborating with your class in the preparation and annotation of these materials? Join COVE at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute for the course “Open-Assembly Teaching, Making, and Publishing: COVE Editions and Studio.”

This course will introduce the open-assembly teaching and making tools at the nonprofit COVE (Collaborative Organization for Virtual Education), which anyone, anywhere can use without having to learn to code. COVE is a scholar-driven, open-access platform that publishes both peer-reviewed material and active-learning or “flipped classroom” student projects built with our web-based online tools. COVE operates as a two-fold platform: Studio, where instructors can create anthologies of primary works that can then be made available for multimedia student annotation, and Editions, which hosts published and private editions, galleries, maps, and timelines, and facilitates peer review. DHSI students will learn the COVE toolset and principle of “open assembly,” or free, transformative remixing of texts, items, and archives. They will build an anthology (in COVE Studio) and begin an Edition, Map, Gallery, or Timeline (in COVE Editions) that they can easily complete afterwards. They will then share these projects with the DHSI community.

This course will be taught collaboratively by Rebecca Nesvet, Co-Technical Director at COVE Editions and Pedagogy Consultant at COVE Studio, and Laura Rotunno, Pedagogy Consultant at COVE. This course may be combined with “Conceptualizing and Creating a Digital Edition.”

Please note that the application for tuition scholarships and travel bursaries closes on February 14, and early bird registration close on April 1. Discounts are also available for members of select organizations, or for students and staff of select universities and colleges.
