From the report:
In mid-October, I presented on a roundtable titled “Teaching the American West Online” at the Western History Association’s annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Our panel also included Dr. Jennifer Thigpen (Washington State University), Cassandra Clark ( Ph.D. Candidate, University of Utah), and was chaired by Dr. Sandra Mathews (Nebraska Wesleyan University). I enjoyed the opportunity to share my experiences as a graduate assistant in MSU’s Lab for the Education and Advancement of Digital Research (LEADR), a member on the board for the Digital Scholarship Lab, and a CHI fellow. I am grateful for Michigan State’s vibrant Digital Humanities community which has shaped my worldview to consider the future of humanities disciplines in a digital age.
