Transforming DH: An Interview with Dr. Moya Bailey

It’s been a busy academic year, with too little time to blog and share my work. I thought I’d at least update things a bit by sharing an interview I did at the end of last fall with Moya Bailey, Assistant Professor in the Department of Cultures, Societies and Global Studies, and the Women’s, Gender […]

New Aestheticism and Early Modern Anatomy

For several weeks I’ve been musing on the concept of new aestheticism, thanks to a particularly gripping talk Justin Hodgson gave at our Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities meeting in late March.

Networking Women: Digital Tools and the Archive

Yesterday I gathered with a fantastic team of fellow IU Bloomington early modern scholars for a satellite session of the Six Degrees of Francis Bacon Networking Women event.

Our conversations have been interesting, but difficult, as we attempt to articulate ways to perform these actions in response to […]

Thinking About Not Thinking: Can Scholars Do It?

My apologies for the lack of posts lately. Things have been busy at home and school. I was in Chicago to see some shows for my performance theory class and there’s just generally a lot to catch up on. But, that will have to happen in good time. Right now, I’d like to think about […]
