I am a PhD student at the University of Chicago in Northwest Semitic Philology and also do software development for a small company that makes ancient texts available electronically (among other things), having studied computer science and math as an undergrad and worked as a software engineer before turning my attention to semitics.

I’m interested in working with people developing and implementing the best tools and approaches for supporting digital humanities for research, collaboration and teaching. I have particular interest in networked tools for collaboration and communication. The faculty, students and other scholars associated with our Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at Case Western Reserve University are using some digital tools and resources, and would like to engage with the burgeoning national digital humanities community.

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.

Theaster Gates
Artist

My art practice is comprised of 3 parts, installation, performance and hospitality. In each of those areas, I use a combination of very low technology outputs combined with live performance. I hope to use sound and video much more extensively and very open to collaborations with technicians interested in outputs for their scientific or technological research. Sound and video manipulation and installation, interactivity and GIS all play substantial roles in my creative processes.

As an artist, I work in both digital and traditional media, with particular interest in intermedia, algorithmic composition, and performance. At Northwestern University, where I taught interactive multimedia and virtual reality for artists for many years, I am currently working at the Collaboratory Project, a collaborative online environment for K12 education. I have curated various exhibitions of electronic media. With Debora Wood I was co-curator of “Imaging by Numbers: A Historical View of the Computer Print,” which showed at the Block Museum, Northwestern University, in January-April 2008.
