Announcing the DEFCon Reading Group

We are excited to launch the DEFCon Reading Group, an opportunity to connect with other DEFCon members. For each meeting, we suggest several entries to read as we work our way through Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Concepts, Models, and Experiments, edited by Rebecca Frost Davis, Matthew K. Gold, Katherine D. Harris (also a DEFCon Mentor!), and Jentery Sayers. The book is available open access here. We’re varying the meeting times from month to month to make them as available to as many community members as we can.

We’d love to have community members lead each conversation! If you’re interested in leading, drop a note to Roopika Risam at
