I enjoyed my training as an DHA and am excited for the upcoming year. The interdisciplinary nature makes the field extremely broad, requiring us to take a #multifacetedapproach. I really enjoy this dynamic aspect about digital humanities. As a result, I made the following meme.
I am excited to learn more and expand my horizons further in my work as a DHA!
Hello! I’m Alan. I am a senior psychology major at Carleton and this is my first year working as a DHA. I look forward to learning different methods and approaches that scholars take to tackle projects in digital humanities. I am also excited to learn about different ways to apply data and creative methods to scrape data when working in the realm of humanities.
Currently, I am working on a non-fiction essay film about herders in China and how their traditional lifestyle/relationship to the environment are changing as different technologies are introduced into their lives. I am also developing this into a larger project. I am trying to investigate the distance between personal identity and traditional culture of the younger generation, exploring how does the coming of age in the modern era influence our identities.
