    Reflecting on a Year of Book Collecting

    In a way, a cookbook is a little world of its own. There is something magical that happens when you read, say, Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking or Samin Nosrat’s Salt Fat Acid Heat. In a sense, yes, they are short scripts of instructions dictating the preparation of specific items of food, […]

    A few (uncommon) things to consider before jumping into your next digital project

    Scalability Start really small. Though this may seem simple, one of the pitfalls of digital humanities is that so many great ideas start off too big and quickly become untenable—and difficult, if not impossible to finish.

    Reframing Digital Humanities: Conversations with Digital Humanists

    Reframing Digital Humanities: Conversations with Digital Humanists is an open educational resource (OER) inspired by the Reframing History Podcast.  While I can say much about this project, my comments from the introduction capture the project well (I hope!).

    I Love Wanda: Transcending the Screen of Gender Roles

    In the past, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has often been critiqued for falling short with its development of female characters. In favor of action-packed movies, nuance and development of characters was often implied as background or crammed into origin movies. Of course, until 2019, no female Marvel character had been given her own origin […]

If I could, I would add another major, but instead I settled on adding the pre-law minor. Literature helps me understand the world around me. Both poetry and prose […]

    3 UX/UI websites that will inspire your next digital humanities project

    What is a text? A text is not solely composed of words on a page. If we break down all of its elements, we can also include the title of the text, the copyright page, and the preface. We may even note the paper itself, the ink, or the binding. In literary studies, this is […]

  • Introduction Post: All About those Stories

    Hi Everyone, I’m Sam, a creative writer and instructor who seeks to diversify and challenge dominant narratives. This is a broad and relatively overused statement, I know, but it is the overarching theme in all my interests: in fiction, it involves writing a novel that humanizes individuals who struggle with addiction and class; in teaching, it involves […]
