We’re delighted to have Sara Humphreys kicking things off with a discussion of using Twine (https://twinery.org/) for her research:
 
What are the processes and practicalities of turning an academic edition into a text-based game? This interactive and inclusive discussion is less interested in why anyone would remediate a print edition into an online game and more interested in how to go about such a project. In addition to the sheer logistics of such an undertaking, there are ethical questions to tackle, such as representation and access.
 
Sara Humphreys is a settler Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of English. She is also an Open Knowledge Practicum Fellow with the Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory (ETCL).
