A list of the most-used annotations tags on the site Infinite Ulysses, the participatory digital edition of James Joyce's challenging novel Ulysses, is now about one month into its open beta-testing period.

Since my last post in January, I've used feedback from generous beta-testers to bring the Infinite Ulysses participatory digital edition up to where I'd hoped it would be by the end of my dissertation. In the past, I invited users in small batches from a list of readers who signed up to beta-test.

Extremely Visible and Incredibly Close Reading of Logos

The Foreign Literatures in America (FLA) project’s intellectual goals present a graphic design challenge marked by a delicate balance. We’re creating an archive that will demonstrate how the idea of Americanness has been shaped by actors beyond those traditionally labelled “American”; how do we create a logo and other graphic properties that reflect this focus
