As the fall term begins, we are delighted to welcome our 9 (!) SLab Fellows. Ranging across 5 disciplines from the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Our Graduate Fellows in the Digital Humanities and Praxis Program Fellows join a distinguished community of past fellows.
Graduate Fellows in the Digital Humanities
We are excited about the opportunity to work closely with our Graduate Fellows in the Digital Humanities, James, Jenny, and Emily as they develop their projects. Please join us at their welcome lunch and panel September 12th, at 12 PM in the Scholars’ Lab Commons.
As a previous post noted, James, Jennifer, and Emily’s projects converge around questions of social networks and mapping.
James Ambuske’s (History) dissertation is titled “Scotland’s American Revolution: Emigration and Imperial Crisis, 1763-1803.”
Jennifer Foy’s (English) dissertation is titled “Mapping Sympathy: Sensibility, Stigma, and Space in the Long Eighteenth Century”
Emily Senefeld’s (History) project is titled “The Cultural Programs of the Highlander Folk School, 1932-1964.”
Praxis Program Fellows
Marking our 4th year of the Praxis Program, we warmly welcome:
- Amy Boyd (English)
- Swati Chawla (History)
- Andrew Ferguson (English)
- Joris Gjata (Sociology)
- Jennifer Grayburn (Art and Architecture)
- and Steven Lewis (Music)
Past Praxis teams developed Prism, a web application for crowd-based interpretations of texts, and re-imagined Ivanhoe, a platform for playfully (and collaboratively) interpreting texts and artifacts.
This year’s cohort will refine Ivanhoe as well as explore our new Makerspace. With a talented and disciplinarily diverse team, we are looking forward to their dive into Ivanhoe. Keep track of their experiments on our blog!
