Newbook Digital Texts is an innovative digital humanities publishing house re-imagining and restructuring traditional academic research, publication, and education. Over six years, more than 100 University of Washington undergraduate interns and several graduate assistants have collaborated with faculty on projects ranging from Ottoman and Georgian poetry to nineteenth-century travel journals from Iraq and Egypt. We promote systemic change in undergraduate education, technological innovation, and the preservation of at-risk historical documents. Our work is international, open source, and open access. We are devoted to blending the traditional values of the humanities with the development of technological competency, effective communication skills, and the ability to work in a team-based environment, which has made our graduates unusually attractive to prospective employers.
