    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Hogan’s English and Women’s Studies 245: Introduction to Lesbian and Gay Studies course at Penn State University culminates in a digital archive project for which students crowdsource a collection of LGBTQA representations and artifacts including literature, music, film, art, and institutions. According to the assignment page, “The archive project attempts a digital approach to queer archives, one that takes Derrida’s emphasis on ‘participation’ and ‘access,’ ‘constitution,’ and ‘interpretation’ seriously by handing these tasks over to you as students.” The assignment is well-conceived and organized detailing student roles, group roles, curation and annotation exercises, and overall requirements.
