Mina Loy: Navigating the Avant Garde took the stage in Pittsburgh as part of The Digital Humanities in the 21st Century, a symposium sponsored by the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts, Duquesne University, in the spring of 2017. We presented our project alongside other scholars discussing their digital humanities research on a panel that included Christopher Warren (Carnegie Mellon University, Six Degrees of Francis Bacon) and Anna Gibson (Duquesne University, Digital Dickens Notes).
Suzanne and Susan also conducted a workshop for faculty and graduate students, “Designing Suitable Projects for You and Your Students,” exploring collaborative models of involving students in digital humanities research. During our meeting in Pittsburgh, we devoted significant time to refining plans for the grant period and met with Duquesne Gumberg Library’s digital librarian, Gesina Philips, who has joined our cross-institutional crew.
The panel and workshop contributed to a series of three public events and workshops devoted to digital humanities research held over the spring semester at Duquesne, joined by SUNY-Buffalo’s Cristanne Miller and Nicholas Wasmoen speaking about the Marianne Moore Notebooks project, and the University of Pittsburgh’s Matt Lavine discussing his digital research on Willa Cather.
