For the past five years I directed (and co-directed, with Joanna Brooks) the Digital Humanities Initiative at SDSU: dh.sdsu.edu
I am very pleased to hand over the reigns to Dr. Pam Lach (our Digital Humanities Librarian) and Dr. Angel David Nieves (our DH Historian).
Let the new stage of DH@SDSU begin!
Sometimes you wait a long time for a piece to be published, and sometimes it looks like you’ve been super productive because a bunch of things come out at the same time. Spring 2019 is such a time….
“Circling Back: Electronic Literature and Material Feminism,” The Handbook of Contemporary Feminism, eds. Andrea Press and Tasha Oren (Routledge, 2019).
“Contexts of Digital Literature Criticism: Feminist, Queer, Materialist” in Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures, eds. Anne Karhio and Álvaro Seiça (Spring 2019) (online)
“There’s Nothing Quite Like a Real Book”: Stop-Motion Bookishness” in Medium, Object, Metaphor: The Printed Book in Contemporary American Culture, eds. Heike Schaefer and Alexander Starre (Palgrave, 2019).
I’m proud to be named “Most Influential Faculty Member” for the second year in a row: last year it was for the English side, and this year for the Comparative Literature side!
Looks like I really have to finish the book because Columbia University Press plans to publish it next year! So excited.
So excited to be accepted to participate in this!:
