Please join us tomorrow, Thursday, May 26, at 10:00 a.m. in Alderman 421, as the Library welcomes our 2015–16 Digital Humanities Fellow, Brandon Walsh, who will be speaking on the subject of “open writing.”
His talk will focus on how course preparation that usually takes place behind the scenes can be brought into the open in a collaboration between writer and audience, teacher and student, programmer and non-programmer to enrich the teaching and learning experience. Case study will be a course workbook for an introduction to digital text analysis being taught in the fall. Refreshments will be served.
Brandon Walsh is an Assistant Professor and Mellon Digital Humanities Fellow in the Library at Washington and Lee University. He received his Ph.D. and M.A. from the Department of English at the University of Virginia. He works at the intersections of modern and contemporary literature and culture, sound studies, and digital humanities. In the past, he has worked on or for Prism (the Praxis project, not the NSA program), NINES, and Grounds for Argument.
