Abra Johnson
Lecturer Sociology/M.A./applying for Ph.D.
City Colleges of Chicago/Thick Routes Performance Collage

My past research and current interests encompass an examination of the critical role of hip-hop music as a U. S. “ambassador” to the global markets of identity, culture, and economics negotiated in the realm of mass-mediated popular cultures. Using hip-hop as a template for future studies incorporating Chicago house music, I seek to move beyond the well-known but oversimplified dichotomy of hegemony and resistance that frames sociological analyses of hip-hop, overlook the critical importance and reflection of the artists’ sociocultural capital as (U.S.) Americans (not just African-American, Latino, Asian-American, etc.), and exclude the complex implications of the music produced by women. Key foci for me include the nuanced/subtle, the sometimes oppressive/contradictory, and the resistive/expansive performative and lyrical practices and symbols, carried and expressed by women in hip-hop, and especially house, as they concurrently act as socializers of culture, both at home and abroad.

I am currently assisting in the development of a wiki site Consuming Blackness Diasporically, that explores black cultural expressive traditions in a setting of global dialogue. Connecting communities in Chicago/US, Trinidad and Brazil, the CBD project moves from mapping each unique cultural form and practice (house, rapso/pan/folk/orisha, and capoeira) to exploring the creative dialogue that emerges by putting these expressive traditions in conversation with each other.

Bill Sterner
Lecturer, Dir. MacLab
Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science
U of Chicago

I’ve long been interested in crossover projects between computing and the humanities, and have taught a variety of courses related to themes of “computer programming as a liberal art.” I’m currently working on a monograph on Aristotle’s Poetics as a productive science that may someday have implications for thinking about artifactual design. Brenda Laurel’s Computers as Theater would be in a related domain space.

I am interested in digital libraries, with special emphasis on metadata issues (creation, standardization, access, semantics, usability); use and users of digital resources; digital collection management and development; and digital project management. Like others in my field, I believe the digital humanities offer scholars at the junior-faculty level many opportunities to do innovative, original research and break from the typically restrictive route to tenure in ways possibly transcending the intellectual gains of the scholarly monograph.

Carmela Mattza
Ph.D Candidate
Romance Languages and Literatures
University of Chicago

I am interested in Digital Libraries, particularly I focus on pedagogical strategies to make them accessible through my teaching in the classroom. “Perseus” and The “Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes” (BVMC) are among those I use a lot, although because of my area of expertise it is BVMC the one I use the most. BVMC is one of the largest digital libraries in the Spanish speaking world and it is free. It provides access to texts in a variety of areas (science, arts, humanities, newspapers, etc) and time (medieval, early modern, modern, contemporary, etc.).
