Register » THATCamp Southeast 2013

I’ve been a member of the digital humanities community here at Georgia Tech for the past year and a half (+!) and yet here I am, THATCamp-less.  It’s a shame.  I’m ashamed!  THATCamp is one of the hallmarks of what we at the Brittain Fellowship try to do on a regular basis: to get smart

Sep 13th, 2011 | By

Another new Britt!   I’m excited to be here at Georgia Tech this fall, and looking forward to working with the group of students I have this semester.  As promised, they are a great bunch (although we’re still in the honeymoon phase pre-grading!)  Prior to arriving here I taught writing and literature at Colorado State
