Fellowship Description: 

Jeff Maynes explored the use of social annotation software to help students work through dense philosophical texts in collaboration with their classmates.  These tools provided an opportunity to help students focus on the process of critical reading, but also raise interesting questions about the implications of shifting the medium of reading from paper to the screen.

In addition, he was interested in the tools available to digital humanists, such as citation analysis, in order to better understand the philosophical implications of work in experimental philosophy that uses those tools, and how they could be used to explore philosophical questions.
