I am currently Community Manager for Humanities Commons. Previously, I was a Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellow at Emory University, a position that was shared between the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives & Rare Book Library and the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship. This semester (F17), I’m co-teaching the Digital Praxis Seminar at the CUNY Graduate Center with Steve Brier. I am a member of the Journal for Interactive Technology & Pedagogy editorial collective. In addition to my interest in the intersections between libraries, archives, and digital humanities, I also research and write about African American culture and the Spanish Civil War.
