Upcoming talks

I’m happy to share this poster for my upcoming talk at UConn (in English). If you’re in the area, I will also be presenting on April 8th as part of UConn’s Digital Media and Design department’s new Digital Directions speaker series (part of a celebration of this year’s Day of DH).

For those attending next week’s SCMS conference in Seattle, consider becoming part of the new Media and Environment Scholarly Interest Group (SIG). I’ll be on a Saturday morning Media and Sustainability panel, chaired by Nicole Starosielski and Janet Walker.

Last but not least, I’ll also be speaking at Drew University on April 21st (running a workshop for English and environmental studies students, but the lecture is open to the public), and the University of Maine (Bangor) on September 24–more details forthcoming. Please distribute to those who might be interested!

Upcoming presentations at MLA 2013 in Boston

If you’re going to be at this year’s MLA convention in Boston and you’re interested in what’s going on in the world of ecomedia, please consider attending the following panels. Saturday’s panel is sponsored by ASLE, and Sunday’s forms part of the growing DH line-up at MLA.  I’ll be presenting on both (though note that I’m missing from the official program for the second panel, due to some late-breaking schedule juggling).
