Below are the projects that I have been involved with:

Current Projects:

  • Programming Archipelago: Digital Visual Cultures and Nationalism in Indonesia – A Digital Companion (with Joshua Romphf). A digital companion of my dissertation project, which will be built in a customized Omeka platform. Featured here.
  • Intersectionality in/and Digital Humanities. Part of the Global Digital Humanities Working Group activities.

Past Projects:

  • Digital Diaspora. Part of the Global Digital Humanities Working Group activities with grant from the Central New York Humanities Corridor from an award by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. My role in the working group is the principal faculty coordinator. Throughout 2018-2019 academic year, our working group organized activities addressing our annual theme: Digital Diaspora. Our principal objective was to try to bring together diverse scholars to explore issues and debates at the intersection of digital humanities and diaspora studies. We sought to explore how digital humanities approaches productively engage with studies of diaspora and vice versa. We hosted three public events: “Open Space: New Media Documentary” with guest speaker, Patricia R. Zimmermann (Ithaca College), a public talk by Patrick Jagoda (University of Chicago), “Networked Borders: Media Experiments in a Closed World,” and a two-day Digital Diaspora Symposium as our signature event, in which we invited four other scholars in addition to Jagoda: Jennifer Malkowski (Smith College), Lauren Berliner (UW Bothell), Crystal Eddins (UNC Charlotte), and Amit Ray (RIT), to lead work-in-progress workshop at the University of Rochester.
  • Re-Envisioning Japan: Japan as Destination in 20th Century Visual and Material Culture (with Joanne Bernardi and the University of Rochester’s Digital Humanities Center team).
