Hi, I am your disembodied teacher

Well, maybe not literally. Although I did once launch a headless ds106 that spawned a (Photohopped) decapitation theme. This semester I am teaching, from my home in Arizona, a seminar for five Writing Studies students at Kean University doing their MA Thesis. They’ve already experienced this mode, as it was how I co-taught the Networked […]

#DigitalHumanities community, can you help me?

Happy Wednesday everyone!So, today I come to the research and Digital Humanities communities looking for help/direction with my thesis work. As you can learn from my first post, I have an idea of what I would like to do with my thesis. To recap:I still…

Grab Bag(bean?)

Hello, readers. I know I said I was going to talk about the economic features of CS (this is the abbreviation I’ll be using from here on out for “closed species”) communities in my next blog post, but I’m sorry to say that’s not going to happen today.

Closed Species 101

I have come to the realization (with Prof. Levine’s help!) that my readers might need some fundamental, background information on closed species communities in order to get the most out of this blog.  This post will be an introduction to the concept.  A large portion of what’s written here will be a repeat of information … Continue reading Closed Species 101
