In the rapid pivot to remote teaching at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many instructors turned to tools like Hypothes.is and Perusall that allow students to engage in social reading and annotation. These same tools are also built into many digital editions (like those in Literature in Context) and multimedia scholarly publishing platforms like Manifold and Scalar. The Digital Humanities Caucus calls for presentations on annotation in an eighteenth-century and/or contemporary context.
