Join us for an exciting webinar showcasing the cutting-edge research of HASTAC Scholars consisting of lightning round presentations. Presentation topics include:

Digital Approach to Literary Analysis, Alicia Doyen-Rodriguez (Emory University): Combining digital humanities methodology and literary approach is the focus of this talk. I will show you how to incorporate in a few steps a digital mapping component to your lit classes.

Artistic Interventions in the Age of the Algorithm, Christopher M. Carruth (University of Colorado, Boulder): As a practice I am interested in how data, text, imagery, and the body serve as critical mediators towards understanding the social, emotional, and existential impacts of technology on contemporary life. The complexities which emerge from our material and technologized landscapes are research subjects, while the methods of interaction, exploration, and engagement collapse into a research-based practice that itself formally resolves as time-based media, creative coding, poetics, performance, and new media. Ultimately, my work is about interrupting, agitating, and subverting technology so as to reimagine future potential.

Teaching the Digital Archive for Gender and Women’s Studies, Galen Bunting (Northeastern University): In my presentation on the topic of "Teaching the Digital Archive for Gender and Women’s Studies," I will discuss three examples of digital archives I highlighted in my class, Introduction to Women's, Gender, And Sexuality Studies," and lead the audience through the introductory assignment for the unit, inviting the audience to embark on their own exploration of digital archives which include themes related to gender and sexuality studies.

Collaborative Digital Editions: the Primary Source Cooperative, Juniper Johnson (Northeastern University): The Primary Source Cooperative--a joint project between the Massachusetts Historical Society and the Digital Scholarship Group at Northeastern University--is developing a model for publishing small scale digital editions for scholars without institutional hosting options. This talk will explore the unique workflow that transforms transcriptions in Word documents to XML files encoded with semantic data for online publication with a digital lab with computational text analysis.

Belonging and Becoming in Academia, Maria Savva and Lynn Nygaard: The presentation focuses on experiences of non-traditional doctoral students: part-time, distance, international students, often with strong professional backgrounds. Challenges faced and effective support mechanisms are discussed. Our book is available for free here.
