Interests: African American literature and culture, Afrofuturism, digital humanities (DH), the “post-monograph,” SCALAR and other publishing platforms for media-rich, purely digital projects. I am currently at work on two book-length projects, a DH project on Afrofuturism with the working title A Genealogy of Afrofuturism and a print monograph on the subject of the afterlife in African American literature and music, with the working title Soul Sounds. My first two book-length projects were print monographs, “Each Hour Redeem”: Time and Justice in African American Literature (2013) and Unnatural Selections: Eugenics in American Modernism and the Harlem Renaissance (2004). I am a Professor of English at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.

As Ohio State’s Digital Humanities Librarian, I support the campus digital humanities network, consulting with faculty and graduate students on research and curricula, collaborating on projects, and coordinating learning opportunities for digital methods and tools. I publish on DH librarianship practices and on the celebrated British Romantic writer Mary Robinson, and I apply digital humanities methods to textual scholarship in my research.
Andy Petersen is a digital scholarship librarian in the MSU Libraries. His research centers on issues surrounding data ethics, surveillance, and maker culture. He is the co-founder of the SurvDH community and the Makers by Mail project.
I am a scholar of digital humanities, electronic literature and “playable books,” digital-born, game-like stories in touch environments like tablets and phones. My appointment is half DH, half book publishing. I work also on digital pedagogy. I curated the “Interface” keyword in MLA’s first open access publication, Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities.

Dr. Kirstyn J. Leuner is Assistant Professor of English at Santa Clara University. She earned her Ph.D. in Romantic-era literature at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her research interests include literature of the long 18th century, digital humanities (DH), women’s writing, media history, and romanticism. She has published essays on Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, Rodolphe Töpffer’s earliest comic strips, markup languages, and book history. She directs the Stainforth Library of Women’s Writing, a multi-institutional DH project that studies Francis Stainforth’s library, the largest private library of women’s writing collected in the 19th century.

Amy E. Earhart is Associate Professor of English and affiliated faculty of Africana Studies at Texas A&M University. Earhart’s work has focused on building infrastructure for digital humanities work, embedding digital humanities projects within the classroom, and tracing the history and futures of dh, with a particular interest in the way that dh and critical race studies intersect. Earhart has been particularly concerned with representing a diverse history of digital humanities, as is the case with projects The Millican Massacre, 1868, DIBB: The Digital Black Bibliographic Project, and “Alex Haley’s Malcolm X: ‘The Malcolm X I knew’ and notecards from The Autobiography of Malcolm X” (a collaborative project with undergraduate and graduate students published in Scholarly Editing). Earhart has published scholarship on a variety of digital humanities topics, with work that includes a monograph Traces of Old, Uses of the New: The Emergence of Digital Literary Studies (U Michigan Press 2015), a co-edited collection The American Literature Scholar in the Digital Age (U Michigan Press 2010), and a number of articles and book chapters in volumes including the Debates in Digital Humanities series, DHQ, Textual Cultures, and Humanities and the Digital.
