Martha Nell Smith and Building an Institute

In this week's episode, I sat down with Dr. Martha Nell Smith, a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher, Professor of English, and Founding Director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland. Her numerous print publications include five singly and coauthored books, including —Emily Dickinson, A User’s GuideCompanion to Emily Dickinson; and Open Me Carefully: Emily Dickinson’s Intimate Letters to Susan Dickinson. She has also authored scores of articles and essays in journals and collections such as American Literature Journal of Victorian CultureSouth Atlantic QuarterlyWomen’s Studies Quarterly ESQ, and A Companion to Digital Humanities. Dr. Smith is also the executive director of the Emily Dickinson Archives 2. Dr. Smith and I chat about founding the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), building the Emily Dickinson Archives 2, and diversity in DH.

Welcome back from Winter Break! Today, I'm excited to share a recording of Tanya DePass's talk "I Need Diverse Games," hosted by The University of Oregon back in November. For a more complete description of the talk, please see our blog post on the UO DH webpage. 


DePass’s visit to the University of Oregon was made possible by Women’s and Gender Studies, English, Environmental Studies, the Center for the Study of Women in Society, the New Media and Culture Certificate program, the LGBTQIA Scholars Academic Residence Community, LGBT Education Support Services, UO Housing, the UO Residence Hall Association. and UO Think.Play. I’d also like to extend special thanks to Tanya DePass and Dr. Edmond Y. Chang for allowing me to write about the event.
