Greetings HASTAC scholars! I'm incredibly excited and honored to be a part of this community. My name is Brian Gutierrez and I'm a fifth-year PhD student at the University of Washington (Seattle) doing work on 18th and early 19th century visual media and the literary marketplace. I'm committed to the practices of critical pedagogy and plan to use this time and space to address the topic of digital literacy in First-Year composition classes in socio-economically diverse areas and look for multiple ways to include students in creative, "expert" practices at your more non-traditional sites of knowledge production. I'm new to the field of DH, but am convinced that it can open up new avenues for multi-modal learn practices, while fostering a rich environment of collaboration, play, and creation.
Thanks so much for reading and I look forward to collaborating, playing and creating with you all!
