Thoreau Society Annual Gathering

This summer, Paul Schacht and Joe Easterly traveled to the Thoreau Society’s Annual Gathering in Concord, Massachusetts to present  on Digital Thoreau, which is a project that seeks to build a community of scholarship, learning, and discovery centered on the works of Henry David Thoreau, staring with a digital variorum edition of Walden.

Starting in 2010, the Digital Thoreau project has been establishing a network of scholars interested in collaborative scholarship on Thoreau’s manuscripts. Earlier this year, Digital Thoreau joined the DHCommons, which is a centerNet-funded initiative which provides a place for digital humanities projects to find collaborators, and collaborators to find projects.
