This project was inspired by the work on the undergraduate digital humanities minor by the DH Curriculum Committee at Michigan State University, and by DH@MSU’s broader conversations that think through the boundaries and trajectories of DH and its impact on the wider world. We are grateful to the Curriculum Committee, the entire DH@MSU community, and to Director Kathleen Fitzpatrick and Assistant Director Kristen Mapes. This community’s longstanding commitments led us to frame this book in terms of DH’s connections to global and local communities and DH’s ethical and sociopolitical engagements.

Thank you to all of the contributors to this book, including those who have allowed their scholarship to be freely shared and remixed. Thank you to the graduate students in the Department of English graduate seminar on Public Humanities who created original works for this textbook.  Thank you also to the colleagues who recommended materials for this volume, including Emily McGinn, Barry Mauer, Susan Van Alstyne, and Justin Wigard.

This project was funded through a grant from MSU’s Open Educational Resources program, and we are grateful to the entire team at MSU Libraries working on this very important project, and all their help on the various parts of producing this book. In particular, we are grateful for the guidance, expertise, and generosity of spirit of Regina Gong, who made this project possible. The underlying values and commitments of the open educational resource movement have much common ground and interaction with DH, and we are grateful to those at MSU and elsewhere who further this immensely important work toward more equitable knowledge worlds.
