I am currently an intern at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities through the IMLS Digital Humanities Model Internship program. I'd be very interested in meeting other students at the iSchool who might be interested in participating in an informal Digital Humanities/Scholarship reading group. Please contact me off list should you be inclined to join this reading group. I know that we are all busy but I think making time to devote to discussion and reading of literature in Digital Humanities/Scholarship might supplement our education at the iSchool.
I just started reading Matthew Kirschenbaum's Mechanisms and would like to propose it as the first book for the group to discuss.
Again contact me off list should you be interested. Thanks so much.
"Mastery of language affords remarkable power." - Frantz Fanon
“[T]he tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream.... It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim is sin."
— Benjamin Elijah Mays, American educator and president of Morehouse College (1895-1984)
