Digital Solutions to Problems in Scholarship and Learning
Creating Projects and Tools.
From 2015 – 2019, HCLAS faculty across the disciplines, led by Dr. John Bryant, Professor Emeritus of English, worked on digital research projects that promoted collaborative scholarship, critical thinking, and learning in their fields of study. The webpages linked here summarize the scholarly work of the researchers and link to some of the completed projects. These pages are evidence of Hofstra’s commitment to digital research and digital pedagogy.
