I’ve got the most amazing week coming up. First up I’m off to speak at Chapman University on all things New Media and Digital in the arts. This will be an exciting reunion for me and the fabulous Dr Kelli Fuery who was my secondary supervisor on my PhD. She mentioned me in the acknowledgements of her book New Media: Culture and Image in the most perfect way possible (see image). I’m endlessly grateful for her support and kindness during my PhD, I can’t wait to see her!

Following that, I’m going to the annual CAA conference where I’m looking forward to a crazy schedule – although I hope it won’t blow my mind quite as badly as last year (my first CAA experience) as I needed about a week to come down after that. This time I’ll be majorly starstruck because I’m speaking on a roundtable exploring the intersections of Art History and the Digital Humanities. Here’s the blurb:

This panel will take up such questions as “How might the traditions of Art History and Visual Studies enrich the Digital Humanities?”, “What role might networked modes of communication and analysis play in our discipline?”, and “How might our own scholarship be more visual?”  Panelists will present their own digital projects and also offer advice on how to undertake similar work.  There will be ample time for discussion as well.
