Oh that’s right, I have a blog. Apologies for the lengthy hiatus. Summer, for any graduate student, is never as restful as you think it is going to be. I recently completed another chapter draft of my dissertation and hopefully this will allow me to commit some more time to posting on the internet.
To start off this renewed effort, I wanted to announce that I have been named a Mellon Digital Scholarship Fellow for the 2013-2014 academic year. I will be joining Emory’s Center for Digital Scholarship, which is a new endeavor that includes the Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC), the Electronic Data Center, the Lewis H. Beck Center, and the Emory Center for Interactive Teaching. As a fellow, I will be collaboring on DH projects large and small, teaching workshops, and helping other scholars incorporate digital research methods into their work. For the past year, I’ve also been the graduate researcher for DiSC’s Battle of Atlanta project,which will create an interactive site and mobile app on the 1864 Battle of Atlanta. I will continue working on this effort during my time with ECDS and look forward to collaborating on additional projects. I’m grateful for the opportunity and very excited to be a part of ECDS next year.
