I’ve been in the (e)news again!
This time, it was a two part interview with Tara Conley of the fabulous Media Make Change Organization. You can check out parts 1 and 2 here.
Here’s a little bit of what I had to say about the Digital Humanities:
…I think that’s why Digital Humanities is a good model. That is, it isn’t necessarily compartmentalized. You have academics with disciplinary training, you have computer programmers, you have librarians, and so on. You have people from different sectors who are all bringing their knowledge to the table on a particular issue or a particular project. This means that each person has to know what they need to know, but at the same time, you’re creating something together. It’s the collaborative spirit of Digital Humanities that is something we should really embrace and try to bring to other parts of the university.
I’m excited for the exposure and hopefully it leads to some job opportunities (hint hint readers)!
