IPRH is pleased to announce its second cohort of Training in Digital Methods for Humanists (TDMH) Fellows. This pilot program, funded by the Investment for Growth Initiative of the Offices of the Provost and the Vice Chancellor for Research, is designed to equip humanities scholars with the digital tools, computational methods and technological expertise they need to explore or keep abreast of changes in scholarly research, teaching, publication and communication.
The 2019-2020 IPRH TDMH Fellows are:
Gabriel Solis (Music)
Engaging MRI research with a specific orientation to critical race studies, Dr. Solis will pursue training in digital methods to further knowledge about the ways sound and its representation produce and encode racialization.
Lori Newcomb (English)
Dr. Newcomb will explore multimodal literacy practices, namely the interdependence of print and digital media and its affordances in the 21st century classroom while learning how to “map” the reading practices of English gentlewoman, Frances Wolfreston.
Assata Zerai (Sociology)
Dr. Zerai will pursue digital methods in database design to help bring the voices of African women scholars to the foreground of academic fields. This work promises to change up how students and researchers develop information infrastructures that render scholarship from the Global South readily available and easily accessible.
Clare Crowston (History)
Bringing together computational and statistical analysis, Dr. Crowston seeks to extend campus conversations surrounding research and teaching in digital history. Training in digital methods also will support future projects surround the impact of apprenticeship in France, 1660–1880.
Each fellow will receive a two-course release to pursue courses and training in digital methods on campus and will have resources to attend summer workshops as well. There will be one more cohort of fellows next year, culminating in a summer 2021 conference that will showcase the fellows’ experiences and accomplishments.
Congratulations to our most recent fellows!
