Designing Sustainable Projects and Publications

Title

Designing Sustainable Projects and Publications

Subject

Digital Humanities

Description

Pitti’s article focuses on the necessity of collaboration among scholars, despite the challenges they encounter. In order to design complex, sustainable projects in digital humanities, collaboration is necessary because of the cost and the familiarity required with both the research subject and the technologies. Pitti discusses the advantages and challenges connected with collaboration. The primary advantage of collaboration is that a group of scholars can create “research collections more intellectually complex and comprehensive than is possible for an individual.” However, Pitti also examines some of the challenges, such as individual interests versus shared objectives, creating guidelines for the project, and differing levels of technological abilities. He offers some solutions to these obstacles, and he insists that collaboration will enable greater productivity.
