CRDM student Desiree Dighton, was featured in CHASS News in an article titled: Twitter: A More Timely Way to Measure Neighborhood Trends?
The article presents Desiree’s recent project on using Twitter to map the pattern of discussion on neighborhood inequality. She just participated in a digital humanities institute at Purdue University, “Space and Place in Africana/Black Studies” where she further explored her ideas. In the next year, she’ll work on her project and present it at Hamilton College in New York in April 2017.
CRDMer Alex Monea has successfully defended his dissertation today, titled “Numerical Mediation and American Governmentality.” His committee was chaired by Dr. Jeremy Packer, joined by Drs. Helen Burgess, Mark Hansen, and Mark Olsen.
In the fall he will be starting his new position as Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities at George Mason University, jointly appointed to their English Department and Cultural Studies Department.
Dr. Molly Hartzog, recently graduated CRDMer, was awarded the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Dissertation Award. As the first CRDM student in the IGERT GES program, her dissertation is a true example of interdisciplinary work integrating the strengths of CRDM and the Genetic Engineering and Society program. Her dissertation (defended on March 22, 2016) was titled “Inventing Mosquitoes: Digital Organisms as Rheotircal Boundary Objects in Genetic Pest Management for Dengue and Malaria Control.” Her committee was chaired by Dr. Carolyn Miller, joined by Drs. William Kinsella, William Kimler, Huiling Ding, and Fred Gould.
Congratulations to Molly and her committee!
