Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Ivanhoe, the second project at SpecLab. This project was inspired by the desire to design a project that could embody and demonstrate critical principles while providing a model digital environment for next-generation pedagogy and scholarship. The idea for the project came from an e-mail exchange between the author and Jerry McGann. Together they designed Ivanhoe as a game of interpretation and structured the design to reveal what they felt was at stake in exposing assumptions about texts and textuality and reading and knowledge production.

Keywords: Ivanhoe; SpecLab; digital environment; Jerry McGann; interpretation; texts; textuality; reading; knowledge production
