What was your favorite thing about your MAPH year?

My MAPH year was actually two years:  I worked full time at the University of Chicago Press and took classes part-time over the course of the two years.

What are you currently doing (work, writing, etc)?

I am currently the English and Digital Humanities Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  A couple years after I graduated from MAPH, I decided to make the jump from publishing to libraries, so I applied to the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois (in-state tuition + Number one ranking = decision made).  » Read the rest of this entry «
