Design Thinking, Digital Humanities and a Tool for Plant Humanists

15 views

Published on

In July 2019, JSTOR Labs led a one-week design sprint to explore the creation of a new tool for students and scholars studying the cultural history of plants. In collaboration with Dumbarton Oaks in Washington DC, the team conducted a series of design thinking activities to select, design and refine a concept to build. This presentation summarizes progress made during the week.
