Digital Projects

Over the past decade, I have honed a number of skills in digital history scholarship. These include grant writing, project management, digital research skills, website design and development, and conducting user testing and outreach. I have also developed an extensive digital toolkit for developing and building digital projects for myself and others. To get in touch, please refer to my Consulting page. A short selection of the projects I have worked on is below:

Hearing the Americas: This digital humanities project uses digital tools to explore and pose new questions about the history of the early recording industry. I worked on this project as a graduate student from its beginnings to launch as a co-grant report writer, lead researcher, and outreach coordinator. Explore the project here.

ReSounding the Archives: This digital humanities project brings historic sheet music back to life through digitization, recording, and research. Explore the project here.

States of Incarceration: I contributed, along with other University of New Orleans students, in the traveling, collaborative exhibit States of Incarceration, putting local histories of mass incarceration into a national dialogue. You can see the Louisiana portion of the exhibit here, along with other digital and multimedia projects from the larger New Orleans Community.
