This week’s #FridayDHSpotlight highlights our very own Digital Research Studio Fellow, Stacey Park!
Stacey, a Ph.D. student in English at Claremont Graduate University, will be hosting this semester’s first DH Pop Up on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 from 3:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M in The Founders Room of The Claremont Colleges Library.
The workshop, entitled Poetry in a Digital Age will feature a talk and Q&A with Annelyse Gelman, founder and editor of Midst poetry—a digital journal publishing poems in the form of interactive timelapses that show the author’s writing process. Gelman will talk about the origins of Midst; the technology used for the journal and the developing app; and the responses of users and readers. Stacey will also lead a discussion that considers other related trends in DH, including instapoetry and products of electronic literature. What does poetry have to gain or lose in the digital age? Both offline and online, academic and non-academic discourse is divided about issues related to various iterations of poetry in the digital age. Join Stacey and others on Tuesday to share your thoughts on this provocative topic. And in the meantime, keep an eye on the Tufts Poetry Blog for Stacey’s post about this great topic!
