I have been a member of the Digital Humanities Initiative at San Diego State University since its inception in the Fall of 2014, and VITal since its inception in 2017. In joining the University of California San Diego this fall, I am excited to be participating in KNIT (UC San Diego Digital Commons) and working in the Digital Humanities Research Group.
Digital Humanities for me is getting extremely close to primary sources, conducting experiential research, and creating interactive pedagogy. It is about the changing the intellectual paradigms that have historically excluded communication practices that were produced by the subjugated, oppressed, and the ostracized.
I am highly influenced by the work of Marsha Kinder, Johanna Drucker, N. Katherine Hayles, Tara McPherson, and Michael J. Kramer.
