Creating the "HOW(ever) & How2 Digital Archive Project" Online
A work-in-progress, the "HOW(ever) & How2 Digital Humanities Project" features two important, linked journals of feminist, innovative poetry: HOW(ever), print, 1983-1992; and How2, online, 1999-2009. Published and edited by poet and critic Kathleen Fraser, the journals brought together scores of distinguished co-editors and contributors as a particularly reflexive literary community who presented self-commentary and reciprocal conversation, along with new experimental writing, reviews, and expository criticism. Other special features included translation forums and guest-edited features on country-specific constellations of poets in both journals, as well as electronic/new media literature in the born-digital How2. Our talk will discuss the development of our project as a digital humanities scholarly website from the ground up, including discussion of: our archival materials and their acquisition; the scholarly apparatus we are designing to re-present these materials; our Request for Proposals from web developers to collaborate to make our site; our site design and development; ongoing tasks such as code-repair for How2and marking up content for HOW(ever); and the many complex editorial, methodological, and technological considerations involved in all of the above. Co-sponsored: English, Poetry Collection of the UB Libraries, NY Humanities.
