Brief Bio: 

Rachel Arteaga is Assistant Director of the Simpson Center for the Humanities at the University of Washington and Associate Program Director for Reimagining the Humanities PhD and Reaching New Publics, a grant program generously funded by the Andew W. Mellon Foundation. In June 2016 she completed the PhD in English at the University of Washington. Her dissertation, "Sorrow Brought Forth Joy": Feelings of Faith in American Literature, focuses on theories of affect and emotion and representations of religious experience across American literary texts.

In 2012, she initiated a graduate student affinity group on the topic of teaching with technology; beginning in the fall of 2013, this informal collaborative became the interdisciplinary Graduate Interest Group under a grant made possible by the Simpson Center for the Humanities. For two years, she served as a liaison between the UW in the High School program and regional high school teachers of English, an engagement that informed her pilot project Spar, a collaborative public scholarship project designed to assess and encourage the use of digital humanities resources in rural high schools in southwest Washington state.
