Senior Lecturer, Languages, Literatures & Cultures

June 2016 Innovation Fellow

Fellowship Project & Instructional Interests

My interest is in using social media in innovative ways to expand the experience of a course dealing with contemporary creative activity and social issues. I view social media as professional media that can create an informed community of interests, not just social or promotional, but discursive. For a course on Native American culture and art, I plan to incorporate use of social media to connect students with scholarly, activist, and creative networks, as well as publications and institutions. Ideally students will also find this a model for professional use of social media.
