I work in the Libe as the R&I Liaison Librarian for Humanities and Digital Scholarship. As part of that, I help to supervise the Digital Humanities Associates, and work closely with many other groups around campus and at St. Olaf to help support digital scholarship work. The thing that most excites me about digital scholarship is its potential for improving accessibility of scholarship, both in terms of reaching scholars with disabilities but also helping to cross language and writing system barriers.
Director of Digital Arts and Humanities
As Assistant Director of the Humanities Center for Digital Humanities, I work closely with representatives from the Library, Academic Technology and Information Technology Services to foster interdisciplinary collaboration between faculty and undergraduate student-scholars, integrating digital methods deeply into the Liberal Arts curriculum. I teach courses on digital methods, history courses with strong digital components, and collaborative courses in a number of departments that incorporate digital project work. I also co-supervise the Digital Humanities Associate program that trains undergraduates to help coordinate research and pedagogy projects in humanities classrooms. Read my full profile.
I am a History major and Philosophy minor from Tokyo, Japan, and this will be my second year as a Digital Humanities Associate. I have taken several public history courses and I came to be interested in how technology fosters humanities, making it more accessible to the public. In my leisure time, I enjoy creating art, photography, playing the viola, and taking a walk in the Arb.
I am a junior Economics major and this fall will be my first year working as a Digital Humanities Associate. I have become familiar with digital humanities through a few courses I have taken at Carleton and am extremely interested to learn more throughout the year.
