Thanks to Sheila Brennan for a Great Post for International Women's Day

Sheila A. Brennan,the Associate Director of Public Projects at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) and Research Assistant Professor at George Mason University, has written an excellent post regarding her experiences with the RRCHNM and digital humanities for International Women’s Day.
Sheila’s narrative resonates strongly with me when she states: “My perspective may seem too positive, but I am not blind” (blog). I began self-identifying as a digital humanist after reading Johanna Drucker’s SpecLab: DIGITAL AESTHETICS AND PROJECTS IN SPECULATIVE COMPUTING and other works as well as having experiences where I came to understand  the digital humanities as the humanities in and for a digital age. The digital humanities allows me to do the work I believe in and am passionate about as a humanist and to extend that to and through the digital. Like Sheila, I often seem extremely positive because that’s actually the case. I look forward to sharing more of what I do with new collaborations with others. I’m particularly excited about attending SALALM 2012, ACURIL 2012, and THATCamp Caribe in November 2012 to collaborate with even more researchers in Caribbean and Latin American Studies.
