Hi everyone, I have been quite active on HASTAC lately, and am just putting up a formal introduction to the Scholars group.
To say a little about myself, I am a doctoral student in Comparative Literature at the CUNY Graduate Center and am also working as a graduate fellow at the CUNY Futures Initiative and HASTAC@CUNY. I am very excited to be a part of these academic communities and I think that HASTAC is wonderful.
Like many of us, I am interdisciplinary, and though I am working on 14th- and 15th-century literature for my PhD, I also have an MSc in Computing and Information Systems and have previously worked on educational gaming theory and prototyping. I currently blog about both the digital humanities and educational technology at http://classy-tech.blogspot.com.
Because of my interest in Renaissance/Medieval Studies, I have been actively seeking Digital Humanities projects from the Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern periods and I would like to invite those of you working in these periods to join a HASTAC group I have just created, called TAMeR.
I am really looking forward to finding more great DH projects from the pre- and early modern periods and would love to try to get more public interest and involvement in this work. Please feel free to let me know if you have any ideas!
