Praxis Program Panel: “Reading Digitally with Prism and Ivanhoe”

On April 4 at 4:30 PM in the Scholars’ Lab, members of current and previous Praxis cohorts will give a presentation on how their projects, Prism and Ivanhoe, can inform textual study and reading in a digital environment.  The presentation will also feature demonstrations of both projects.

Presenters include:

  • Scott Bailey (Religious Studies, Praxis ’13-14)
  • Veronica Ikeshoji-Orlati (Classical Archaeology, Praxis ’13-14)
  • Stephanie Kingsley (English, Praxis ’13-14)
  • Sarah Storti (English, Praxis ’11-12)
  • Brandon Walsh (English, Praxis ’12-13)

The panel follows the opening masterclass of the Graduate English Student Association conference “Reading Then and Now,” which will run April 4-6, 2014.  The conference will also feature a masterclass by UVa English faculty member Rita Felski (RSVP only); keynote speaker Andrew Piper, from McGill University; graduate student papers on reading practices across cultures and time periods; and a workshop by the Rare Book School.  For a complete schedule, visit

The Praxis panel on Friday is open to the public.

This past May, 2014, I completed my M.A. in English at the University of Virginia. As a graduate student I focused on American literature, textual studies, and learning as much about digital humanities as possible. I served as project manager for the 2013-14 Praxis cohort, rebuilding the Ivanhoe Game. I now work at Rare Book School and the Washington Papers doing bibliographical research and social media. In my spare time I enjoy jamming on my violin, researching family history, and having movie nights with friends. I love ballroom dance, can't get enough opera, and enjoy making gourmet pizza at home.


  1. I was a Praxis Fellow WAY back in ’11-12, fyi! Just wanted to clarify that because I think it’s particularly nice that this panel includes representatives from every cohort. Looking forward to it!
