Hi, my name is Mary, and I’m excited to begin the DigIn (Digital Information) graduate certificate offered through the UA School of Information Resources and Library Science. I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in British literature, and I intend to move into the exciting field of digital humanities. Hence the blog title.
My technical background includes a minor in math and computer science (albeit many moons ago); work experience as a database specialist/statistical analyst for research data; and an interest in exploring new data technologies, especially as they apply to the digital humanities. My Ph.D. research uses digital collections and repositories of nineteenth century materials to aid in my assessment of the discourse of shame in the nineteenth century novel.
Anyway, I’m excited to begin this course and look forward to blogging about my experiences.
