Last year, Meredith Goldsmith joined Duke University as a Humanities Writ Large Visiting Faculty Fellow, learning how to digitally map locations and movements in realistic fiction. She returned to Ursinus College to begin setting in place an undergraduate digital humanities program, armed with firsthand knowledge of digital tools that are within economic and pedagogic reach, the intellectual benefits of employing these tools, and what it takes to learn to use them as part of humanities research. On the eve of a two-day Humanities at Large conference at Duke, when visiting faculty from the past six years of HWL share their insights from the program and what they’ve incorporated into their work and institutions, we talk with Meredith about this pivotal step of beginning a DH program at a small liberal arts college.
