I'm a Research and Instruction Librarian who works with humanities and cultural studies departments at Wellesley College. My own academic background is in English Literature, and I am fascinated by the use of technologies to bring new perspectives to literature and the humanities--from "distant reading" to engaging students as producers and reproducers of the texts they study through mashups, text encoding, or other techniques. I'm interested in the pedagogy of digital humanities, particularly for undergrads.
