Kaylea H Champion
Staff
Project Bamboo

As the Demonstrator Project Manager for the Bamboo Planning Process, I’m interested in the breadth and depth of digital humanities, with a particular focus on areas where improved coordination, infrastructure, and shareable resources have the potential to better enable research for arts & humanities scholars. I am also the director of Scholarly Technology and Research Computing, part of the central IT group at the University of Chicago.

Paul Hertz
Collaborative Applications Developer
The Collaboratory Project
Northwestern University

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.

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.

Shirley Dugdale
Director, Learning Environments
DEGW North America

I am a space planner interested in new modes of scholarship and in design to support visualization and collaborative work with complex data. In particular I want to understand how the future needs of digital humanities and social sciences will differ from those in science and engineering. Much of our work at DEGW has been with university libraries, educators and researchers to understand new demands on learning and workplaces through the integration of user research, strategy and design.

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.
