My questions center around:
1.spaces that make digital information into new knowledge and culture
2. changes digital things enable in culture and society
3. ownership, ethics, and morality in data and surveillance
When I do Cultural Studies: Fanon, Barthes, McLuhan, and Zora Neale Hurston are my spirit theorists, but I like exploring.

The History and Future of Higher Education “is an open, multi-institutional, worldwide, user-inspired, HASTAC-led initiative dedicated to transforming higher education. I participated in the Duke based class led by professor Cathy Davidson. My final project for the course, imagining a University from scratch, can be found at http://terrauniversity.org/

We are a working & research group of transdisciplinary graduate students from Duke, UNC, and NCSU mentored by Cathy Davidson. We explore changes to learning practices in a digital world. We make and write together. Our first big writing project Field Notes #21st Century Literacies: A Guide to New Theories, Methods, and Practice for Open Peer Teaching and Learning is now available in book form and around the web.
At DML2011 I was part of a panel on New Collectives that showcased HASTAC. As part of my talk, I preseneted an online project entitled “Modeling a new Collective: HASTAC Scholars as a Case Study” http://jadedid.com/dml2011/
I’m working on a few projects related to Black/African Diaspora, History and Performance specifically looking at the way historical memory matters. The primary project, Vintage Black Beauty, is part of my dissertation project. The project explores what it means to have access to archival imagery across time and space for the purpose of creating new “lived” historical narratives. New mini-projects will be added as they are completed.
