digital humanities projects

Designing and creating handmade goods is my work and passion. As a child, I loved putting a pencil to paper and building things with my hands. This love of creating stuck with through school where I studied graphic and product design, as well as art.

Digital and Internet technologies have opened up and connected the world never before dreamed of. When I was a graduate student in art history and cultural anthropology, I took the necessary seminars, but then retreated into the solitary world of book stacks and individual scholarship. There remains a certain romantic sense about such solitary pursuits -  I think of Durer’s engraving of St. Jerome in his study.

 

Cultural theorist Mieke Bal, has encouraged scholars to be open about their research, that by sharing information across disciplines especially, widens our understanding and field of knowledge. She refers to such engagement as ‘traveling concepts.’

 

Information technology creates a forum whereby scholars, artists, videographers, cartographers, graphic designers can assemble vie the Internet, and digitally deposit their work into a cohesive form: the Digital Humanities project.

 

The DH projects here are representative of many of my own personal interests. They also are tied into the videos, educational materials and image galleries that have been the foundation of this company, eLearning Media, Inc. I welcome your participation.
