Magni, Isabella – ProQuest LLC, 2017
The working principles of my dissertation originate with my collaboration with Storey and Walsh's Petrarchive, an innovative digital edition based on a new "rich-text" approach to Petrarch's "Rerum vulgarium fragmenta," maintaining both the textual-material and the digital aspects of my experience.

Dyches, Jeanne; Sams, Brandon L. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
English teaching that satisfies curricula standards has often been siloed from instruction that advances the goals of social justice. Exasperated teachers may feel they can either meet the day-to-day demands of their profession or teach to dismantle social inequities, but not achieve the aims of both approaches. In this reflective practitioner…

Doherty, Peter – Children's Literature in Education, 2017
This article considers the extent to which medieval "mappaemundi" are an important precedent for literary cartographies in fiction for children. It connects the notion of embeddedness to Peta Mitchell's (2011) suggestion that "mappaemundi" refused to entertain the later, post-Enlightenment cartographic distinction between…

With few exceptions, digital humanities projects and objects have been described rather than studied.

Carter, Susan – Higher Education Research and Development, 2016
This article presumes that supervision is a category of teaching, and that we all "learn" how to teach better. So it enquires into what novice supervisors need to learn. An anonymised digital questionnaire sought data from supervisors [n226] on their experiences of supervision to find out what was difficult, and supervisor interviews…
