We have some exciting news to share!
One of Marker Seven's very own, Meagan Timney, has been selected to present her research on digital book design at the Implementing New Knowledge Environments conference, “Beyond Accessibility: Textual Studies in the 21st Century.” Come June, Meagan will be traveling to Victoria, BC to share her paper, “Turning the Page: Rethinking Design for Digital Editions,” which discusses innovative modes of interaction within the realm of the digital text. Here is an excerpt from the abstract for her talk:
“We should leverage the mobile platform, re-envision the interface, and follow empathy-driven design principles that combine the simple pleasure of reading with complex scholarly editorial practices. We have the opportunity to create beautiful and usable digital editions to be read and analyzed by scholars, students, and bibliophiles, editions that move beyond the constraints of TEI and metadata, and offer us a compelling glimpse of the future of the book.”
We are so proud of her hard work and acknowledgement on such a prestigious platform.
Great job, Meagan!
