I’m a visiting faculty fellow under the Duke University Humanities Writ Large Programin academic year 2012-2013, and an assistant professor of literature at Richard Stockton College. My work spans the intersections between postcolonial studies and the digital humanities, 19th/20th Century British and Anglophone Literature and Southeast Asian and African studies, and games in higher education. I’m working on a historical role-playing game called Trading Races that teaches race consciousness in the undergraduate classroom, and direct Digitizing ‘Chinese Englishmen, a digital archival project on 19th century ‘Asian Victorians’ in Southeast Asia. I’m also a core contributor to the Profhacker Column at the Chronicle of Higher Education. Find out more about my research on my academia.edu profile and my website.
I’m the Digital Humanities Strategist in the Robert W. Woodruff Library and Lecturer of English at Emory University. In this position, I’m helping to establish the new, Mellon Foundation-sponsored Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC). Along with developing and managing digital scholarship projects in collaboration with faculty, graduate students, librarians, developers, and more, I teach a new undergraduate “Introduction to Digital Humanities” and work to integrate digital technologies into the whole of the library. My interests in the digital humanities include visualizing geospatial and temporal data as well as integrating digital approaches into pedagogy. I’m a core contributor to the group blog ProfHacker, and I’ve been known to use Twitter.
