National Endowment for the Humanities funded position. Project: “Building a Digital Humanities Minor at The City College of New York.” Principal Investigators: Renata Kobetts-Miller and Thomas Peele.
Key Responsibilities and Achievements:

In the context of this program, I trained seven faculty from across the college to implement DH assignments in their curriculum; I also provided support to help them design their syllabi and assignments.
- Co-designed and supported “Mapping Slavery and Freedom,” a course taught by Prof. John Blanton that introduces students to digital mapping and data visualization practices through a public-facing collaborative research project culminating in the publication of an interactive digital map representing elements of the histories of slavery and emancipation in colonial and revolutionary Massachusetts.
- Co-designed and co-taught (with Prof. Isabel Estrada) “Activism and the College Experience: From Anti-Fascism to #MeToo,” an undergraduate course cross-listed with the English, History, and Political Science departments. The course made use of archival material (including historical literary texts) to examine political activism, and its representation, on the City College campus (as a metonym for US college campuses) from the global conflict between totalitarianism and democracy in the 1930s to current movements such as #occupywallstreet, #blacklivesmatter, and #metoo. The class included a semester-long DH archival recovery project and producing an open access digital edition of a historical text.

The course examines the arts and practices of effective writing and reading in college, especially the use of language to discover ideas via inquiry into themes. The topic of Celebrity Culture is explored reading primary literary texts and literary criticism to which students learn to respond and build upon. Methods of research and documentation are taught, along with some introduction to rhetorical purposes and strategies.
- Fall 2017. One section of English 110, College Writing (4 credits/50 contact hours). “Celebrity Culture,” see description above.
One section of English 130, Writing About Literature (3 credits/35 contact hours “Writing the Counterculture”). Using texts from across the second half of the twentieth century that express an oppositional stance to the hegemonic order of their respective times, the course focuses on the study of US literature and how to engage in scholarly conversations about literature by using close reading of primary and secondary sources, conducting original research, and developing analytical arguments about literary texts in different genres.
