Dear DH Friends, 
We are at mid-semester (amazingly!), and we write to connect, share, and express appreciation.

Connect: We invite you to join us for the following events, so that we can connect around new ideas and skills. Let's learn together about ecocriticism, immersive digital theater, and contemporary critiques of global capitalism. Q&A is where we get to talk together, and we greatly look forward to it! 

Share: We are proud of our community and can't help showcasing their accomplishments, so read on to learn about Nate Rodriguez's new podcast. And, if you have cool accomplishments to share, we want to include you in our next semester. Just let us know! 

Appreciate: We thank you for showing up for DH@SDSU, both by showing up to participate in events but also by showing up with your energy. We often hear from colleagues who tell us that DH@SDSU is "their place" for learning and connection in these challenging times. We are grateful to and for you.

New DH Faces
The DH Center is thrilled to welcome Romain Delaville as the new Digital Humanities Center Programs Specialist. Romain (he/him/his) has a PhD in French from the University of Pennsylvania and a MS in Software Development from Dominican University. Romain's experiences and training blend years of teaching with hands-on expertise in application development. His research focuses on postcolonial studies, critical race theory, and the intersection of literature and visual technologies. His dissertation, “Face Value: Physiognomy, Portraiture and the Making of Subjectivity in Francophone Literature and Visual Culture,” examined how the rise of the second French colonial Empire, the invention of photography, and the development of physical anthropology paved the way for turning physiognomy–“the science of faces”–into a technology of racial classification and oppression. In addition to developing new DH workshop series and supporting DH community members in their work, Romain will be leading our ongoing efforts to produce more DH tool tutorials, and will help make our existing tutorials more visible and usable. Please stop by the DH Center to welcome Romain to our community!
The DH Initiative welcomes Brent Ameneyro (MFA student in Creative Writing) as a graduate programs assistant to our team for Spring 2022. Brent will be working to grow our Electronic Literature programming here at SDSU and in the region as part of a new, pilot experiment.
