Technology has proven to have a great impact on humanistic research in recent years, with many scholars working with and around digital media, the social web, and software that bears on traditional humanities techniques. Highlighting the use of digital humanities scholarship in medieval and early modern studies, this panel is in deep conversation with the past and the present as panelists discuss projects ranging from text analysis tools, dynamic websites, and educational games. Inherently interdisciplinary, these projects can work to increase public engagement with typically academic scholarship, as well as offer new and innovative perspectives on canonical authors that include Shakespeare and Chaucer. As scholarship and pedagogy are increasingly born digital, it is urgently necessary to be able to navigate our humanistic history and origins with a mind to bringing this material and analytical insight to current students, academia, and the learning public. This panel will bring together scholars working in several fields who are working on individual and collaborative digital humanities in the medieval and early modern periods. Brief presentations will foster a broader conversation with HASTAC 2016 conference attendees in order to reimagine and assess digital tools and approaches to humanities scholarship, and projects will be made available for interaction. This panel is sponsored by the HASTAC TAMeR group.
