    Abstract:
    Combining my passions for professional development and social justice, I continue to seek the sweet spot between digital humanities and online community-based learning. DH is particularly exciting for students at two-year, open access institutions because it has the potential to level the playing field as well as to give under-represented communities a voice and the opportunity to offer their own narratives to counter those presented in dominant culture. In this assignment, I ask my writing students to consider more deeply how knowledge is constructed and on whose terms through a reflection paper on their experiences with crowd-sourced digital archives.
    Notes:
    This assignment was part of a research paper course. As a contingent faculty member at a two-year college, I welcome opportunities to collaborate on social justice, DH, and CBL projects across a range of institution types.
