    • How does #DHThis Work? 5
    • How does #DHThis Work? 6
    • Published on #DHThis 7
    • Why #DHThis? 8
    • Why #DHThis? #DHThis provides an alternative framework to the editorial model, where a few editors get to determine what sort of content gets published Only complement: DHNow. But: Also relies on editorial model to showcase content. While DHNow pulls in from many feeds (anyone can add to), these feeds are not easily findable from DHNow site. Note: originally when DHNow was first conceived, they used of a similar crowdsourcing platform but switched to editorial because of lack of diversity 9
    • Why #DHThis? But--Digital Humanities growing as a field. #DHThis helps create the forum for a larger community to have a say. #DHThis goal: To provide a platform to share information & give feedback for/ within a community. 10
    • #DHThis Goals Create a community-based system/ platform Aims to both build community and provide framework for community to interact Also through “Groups” allows the formation of different communities/ subcommunities 11
    • #DHThis & the Research Cycle Serves to demonstrate what a community finds engaging about different subjects Way to get initial feedback/craft reactions to a project/find better ways of expressing it 12
    • #DHThis & the Research Cycle Extends functions of blogs by signal boosting their content. Additionally provides information abt who might be interested in your work through upvotes/comments 13
    • #DHThis Limitations Popularity Contest? (Isn’t academia run on a popularity contest?) Up/Down Voting not adequate for academic subjects? (But what is peer review but a thumbs up or down?) Downvoting does not help with community building (What alternatives are there?/“Dislike” button on Facebook) Categories on header cannot be dynamically determined by individual user (is this impt?) 14
    • Next Steps Next iterations of #DHThis: Possible employment of Reddit platform, to allow for user-generated subreddits? Today’s #DHThis workshop! Continue w current iteration for a year? 15
