The New England Humanities Consortium (NEHC) sponsored the Digital Humanities Island Retreat on August 23–25 at the Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore Island, off the coast of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This all-expenses-paid retreat focused on the cutting-edge research and teaching happening in the digital humanities among the eleven NEHC member institutions and on how to make these valuable digital tools and resources widely available.

For their final project for the “Introduction to Digital Humanities” graduate seminar in Spring 2019, Rebecca Rowe and Tolonda Henderson, both graduate students in English, collaborated on a project, Authorial Influence and Harry Potter Fan Fiction. Rowe and Henderson examine how J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels affect fan-fiction in the Harry Potter universe by text mining the seven Harry Potter novels and 450 fan fictions. Their project suggests more broadly the extent to which authors influence the amateur fiction written by fans, but also how fan fiction differs from the novels that inspire them.
