Abstract

Through adapting Yeats’s “Ego Dominus Tuus” as a digital comic the close ties between the act of interpretation and the creative process are showcased. The process explores how collaborating with those from other disciplines, in this case graphic arts, can benefit humanities scholars by not only allowing them to bring their interpretations to life through creative means but also by helping them to build and develop those interpretations in ways that may not have been otherwise apparent. In assessing this experience, a strong case can be made for viewing interpretive skills as creative devices, implementing inter-disciplinary collaboration within humanities-based instruction, and recognizing the potential of digital technology as an easily accessible and efficient platform for the production of these types of collaborative projects.
