Building on the success of its inaugural event, Media Res #2 will showcase a range of graduate student digital humanities work happening across NYC institutions. Students will give 5-minute interactive presentations of their digitally based projects, introducing us to a range of tools and possibilities for teaching and research. This event aims to foster a growing network of cross-institutional collaborations between graduate students, and make visible the diversity of DH being done here in the city. Twelve graduate students will present, including the following three representatives from Fordham.
TOBIAS HRYNICK (HASTAC Scholar) and HEATHER HILL – MEDIEVAL STUDIES – FORDHAM
“Independent Crusaders Project” concentrates on preparing somewhat prosopographical portraits of crusaders who went to the East without association with the more popular papally-sanctioned crusades.
ALEX PROFACI (Digital Campus Scholar) and HEATHER HILL – MEDIEVAL STUDIES – FORDHAM
“Exploring Place in the French of Italy” features visualizations of spatial data extracted from a corpus of French language texts, as well as downloadable data, “micro-essays,” and longer form essays.
