Title: The Worm and the Book: Digital Humanities Reading, Building, and Learning in the Undergraduate Curriculum

Abstract: An intensely research project-oriented field in its beginnings, digital humanities is increasingly entering undergraduate and graduate curriculums across North America.  Using the University of Toronto's new Digital Humanities Minor as a case study, this paper discusses the challenges--intellectual, institutional, pedagogical--of developing and teaching a sustainable Digital Humanities program in the undergraduate curriculum.
