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

http://cbdcollaboration.wetpaint.com/

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.

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.

Bob Taylor
Director
Academic & Research Technologies
Northwestern University

I’m director of the academic computing organization at Northwestern University. Software developers in Academic & Research Technologies have tackled interesting work in the areas of audio archives (NSF Digital LIbraries in the Classroom program), high-resolution image viewers, text analysis frameworks (WordHoard, MONK in-progress), cultural heritage digitization projects (high-resolution sculpture and mural efforts in Dunhuang and Xian, China), on-line book and manuscript presentation models (Vesalius project, The Encyclopedia of Chicago), and repository interoperability issues.

One of the areas of research computing investigation this fall at NU is development and planning for science hubs: services and software for supporting the work of on-line, “virtual organizations” of large scale, multi-university research teams on NSF, NIH or NASA projects. I’m interested in eventually understanding whether the cyberinfrastructure work that is being done for distributed research teams on large-scale science projects will hold any value for the smaller-scale “craft” traditions (and usually, one-off tools) that have often characterized digital humanities efforts.

As a scholar, I’m writing about the history of the infrastructure state in Britain as it reengineered the relationship between state, market, and everyday life.

I’ve been blogging for upwards of five years now, and I’ve used web 2.0 technologies as an activist before using them to connect interdisciplinary scholars interested in the emerging field of Landscape Studies. I’m broadly interesting in text and visual analysis and promoting new strategies for academic publishing using Web 2.0 technologies. I’m excited about meeting other folks and learning! Say hi!

I am a professor of eighteenth-century British literature who practices “distant reading” and text mining.

I have assembled, taxonomized, and alphabetized these metaphors in order to give a broad characterization of one aspect of eighteenth-century discourse. Technology enables my approach to discourse, but my research remains situated in the longer tradition of philology and intellectual history.
