Digital Studies at UT Austin

I am part of a group of faculty members that has started both an undergraduate and a graduate curricular specialization in the digital studies (here). I am also a member of the team that organized a "Pop-Up Institute" on Digital Humanities at UT Austin, which met in June 2017 to outline an organized research unit in DH at UT Austin.

TILTS 2010/11: "The Digital and the Human(ities)"

In the 2010/11 academic year, I co-directed the Texas Institute for Literary and Textual Studies (TILTS). TILTS is a series of year-long institutes with changing themes, hosted by the UT English Department. Our institute has a website. Together with the other co-director of TILTS, Matt Cohen, I have edited a special issue of Texas Studies in Language and Literature on the digital humanities as a site for possible convergence between literary and linguistic scholarship.
