Description: This workshop is a community consultation designed to explore review criteria of GeoHumanities interactive scholarly works. Spatially-inflected digital projects embody assumptions in their data and visual outputs that differentiate them from text-based research. Discussion will include best practices in the field, as a first step towards validating the research within broader scholarly communities. Attendees will review pre-selected projects, working in small groups to test the draft criteria. Those involved in, or interested in, GeoHumanities research and information visualization, as well as those interested in exploring DH peer review criteria are this workshop’s target audience. Laptops are beneficial, but not required.
