Augusta Rohrbach details her collaborative work with six graduate students to build Digital Emerson: A Collective Archive. Rohrbach uses a set of theoretical and critical readings that engage students in reflections about Emerson’s conscious rupture of pedagogical barriers and how his philosophy might be realized in digital environments. Rohrbach and her students think outside argument-based rhetoric and explore the importance of visual literacy and design thinking. With these techniques, her graduate students imagine an audience beyond academia for their work, one that includes a broad community of interested readers.

Keywords:   digital humanities pedagogy, visual literacy, Emerson, design thinking, argument, rhetoric, graduate education, collaborative, archive, Omeka, obsolescence, digital sustainability
