Building an Accessible Future for the Humanities

A series of four two-day workshops to be held at Northeastern University, Emory University, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the University of Texas, Austin, on theoretical and practical approaches for making digital humanities scholarship accessible to blind, low-vision, deaf, and hard-of-hearing users. An online guide of best practices with examples of humanities projects would be produced as a part of these workshops.

The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland will partner with the BrailleSC.org project, the Northeastern Center for Digital Humanities, the Emory University Libraries Digital Commons (DiSC), the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) at the University of Nebraska, and the College of Information at the University of Texas-Austin to foster the making of digital environments accessible and usable by blind, low-vision, deaf, and hard-of-hearing users. AccessibleFuture will facilitate four two-day long workshops for one hundred humanists, librarians, and information scholars (twenty-five per workshop) to develop and educate humanities scholars with all levels of expertise from beginner to the most advanced about technologies, design standards, and accessibility issues associated with the use of digital technologies.
