“The Dearest Freshness Deep Down Things: How Material Objects Shape Digital Scholarship”


Consider the things we live with, what they mean to us, how they influence our imaginations when we are creative, such as when we write or design.  I invite you to spend time with the material things that grab your attention and mean something to you, both intellectually and emotionally.  These things can shape the structure of creative projects at a fundamental level, as I will illustrate through examples of digital projects in development.  Our creative lives are inspired, as the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins wrote, by the “dearest freshness” dwelling around us in everyday things.
