Voices of Gun Violence is a public digital humanities project that offers a platform for the often untold stories of gun violence in the Milwaukee area. The project bridges contributions ranging from community members, to public health scholars, to visual and audio arts experts. In this round table we will discuss common issues that arise from complex collaborations, and we will have plenty of time for discussion. Questions include: How can a project sustain meaningful community/academic collaboration? How can the digital humanities offer a platform for scholars ranging from the sciences to the arts? What processes help the development of collaboration? What are different ways that we can think about products that emerge from the digital humanities?
