How can undergraduate digital scholarship prepare our students to be citizens in a networked world? In this seminar, a panel of alumni from the Re:Humanities Symposium, an undergraduate symposium on digital media, will examine what it means to be recently graduated in a world of webs and networks. Each panel member will give a brief description of his or her undergraduate digital scholarship and current work. Panelists and seminar participants will then engage in a facilitated discussion of how panelists’ digital scholarship as undergraduates has prepared them for their current work and challenges in a digitally networked world. Panelists will include:
- Michael Suen, B.A., Middlebury College. Mr. Suen is a web producer at the Learning Games Network whose work focuses on transmedia storytelling and social engagement.
- Pollyanna Macchiano, B.A., San Jose State University. An art lover and writer, Ms. Macchiano is a recent graduate of San Jose State University who works in Employee Communications at Adobe Systems.
- Evan McGonagill, B.A., Bryn Mawr College. Ms. McGonagill is a Research Assistant for The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education, where she generates content for the Center’s teaching resources, digital repository, and related social media.
- Anna Levine, B.A., Swarthmore College. Ms. Levine is currently on the market for a job that combines her interest in the future of education with digital media.
- Jen Rajchel, B.A., Bryn Mawr College, and panel moderator. Ms. Rajchel is the Assistant Director for the Tri-Co Digital Humanities Initiative and is also currently curating a multimedia exhibit in Haverford’s library for February 2013.
