I had the pleasurable opportunity to return to my alma mater, the University of Rochester, March 3-5, 2017, to give a talk on “Cultural Approaches to Digital Heritage” as a guest of Mellon Digital Humanities Fellows program, an engaged group of graduate students from various programs.
I also gave an Omeka workshop, demonstrated the Psychasthenia 2 game, talked about the NC Jukebox archive, and had a lot of interesting conversations with faculty, staff, and students. It is great to see how digital scholarship is evolving at the UR and in the English Department.
It was also wonderful to be back in Rush Rhees Library, one of my favorite places on campus, and to visit the Koller-Collins Graduate English Center and Robbins Library, where I first got started working on Digital Humanities projects in the 1990s. I also snuck in trip to the Memorial Art Gallery, and a frigid junket to Lake Ontario. No custard this time of year though!
