Fordham’s Digital Humanities Working Group is pleased to report that Micki McGee, our group’s co-chair and a professor in the department of Sociology and Anthropology, will present at the Networked New York conference this coming Friday at New York University.

McGee will talk about her work on the Yaddo Archive Project, and demonstrate the prototype network mapping interface that she has been working towards with developers Aditi Muralidharan (UC Berkeley), Asik Pradhan (Indiana University), and Charles Forcey (Historicus, Inc).

Other presentations of interest to digital humanists will be Edward Whitley’s talk on The Crowded Page network mapping interface and The Vault a Pfaff’s, a digital literary history of the 19th-century hangout of Walt Whitman and his friends.

Networked New York will focus on on material, literary, and digital connections in the city and is hosted by the Colloquium in American Literature and Culture, and Workshop in Archival Practice at New York University.

The nearly $78,000 award supports research on model digital humanities centers at peer and aspirant institutions and provides seed money to take seven digital projects by Fordham faculty to their next iteration.
