This is my first year as a HASTAC scholar and I'm interested in connecting with others interested in networks and environmental issues broadly. I'm a 5th year in the Program in Literature at Duke, and my own research is on oceans and media theory--actual media in or representing the ocean, as well as how oceans might change how we think about things like communication, database, etc.
I see there haven't been any "environment" or "ecology" or "climate change" tags on blog posts yet, but it would be fantastic to start a conversation about some of these topics in relation to social networks and digital humanities projects. For example, one of the more interesting media events was the Maldives' underwater cabinet meeting in 2009. How might social networks get people thinking about oceans or climate change issues?
Looking forward to meeting more of you!
