Holladay to Present on Digital Humanities Panel

On March 8, 2018, as part of the Inclusion Imperative Program at UMBC’s Dresher Center for the Humanities, Dr. Drew Holladay will present as part of a panel exploring how they came to digital humanities, their current research, how they integrate digital humanities into the classroom, and future directions for a diversity-focused and inclusive digital humanities curriculum.

Event Description: This panel will explore the role of digital humanities research as a teaching tool, now and in the future. Digital humanities is often defined as the thoughtful application of digital tools and methodologies to humanistic inquiry. Keynote speaker Roopika Risam, Assistant Professor of English and Secondary English Education at Salem State University, will discuss her latest project, Mapping W.E.B. DuBois. This project combines the study of literature with approaches to digital and technological literacy, supporting efforts to make humanities teaching more inclusive. 

The event will be sponsored by the Dresher Center for the Humanities, the Media and Communication Studies Department, and the Dresher Center Digital Humanities Faculty Working Group.

The Inclusion Imperative Program is funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
