Re: Humanities Alumni in a Networked World

3:00pm - 4:00pm EST November 8, 2012

We encourage faculty, instructional technologists, librarians, and others from the NITLE Network who are interested in undergraduate research, digital media, and digital humanities to attend this seminar. Attendance by institutional teams is encouraged; individuals are also welcome to participate. (Times EST)

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.

Re:Humanities 2013, hosted by Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges will take place April 4-5, 2013. Submissions are due November 20, 2012. We encourage all interested undergraduates to apply; selected students will receive a small award from the Tri-Co Digital Humanities Initiative to defray travel costs.
