Digital Student Projects

Completed Digital Projects

1. “The Censorship Files: A Study of Texts, Images, and Information

As a class, my students created a digital archive of instances of censorship from around the globe. They composed multimodal editorials that combined histories, personal interviews, images, legal documents, and more on various banned artifacts/events. These editorials were published on our class website, thecensorshipfiles.wordpress.com.

2. “Modernism and the Machine

Modernism and the Machine Banner

Grouped in teams, my students designed podcasts that explore the relationship between modernism and new technologies at the turn of the 20th century. These podcasts study the range of roles that technological innovations played not only in literature, art, and film, but also in science and culture at large. Our course website, https://modernismandthemachine.wordpress.com/, hosts these podcasts alongside abstracts of their contents.

3. “The ‘Troubles’ of Partition: Ireland/Northern Ireland and India/Pakistan

Troubles of Partition Banner

The “Troubles” of Partition is a digital art exhibition designed by my undergraduate students. It features a range of collaboratively-created artwork that studies themes related to Ireland’s and India’s tumultuous partitions. This artwork is paired with original “Artist Statements,” essays that explore how each artwork conveys a particular vantage point of partition. Drawing from fictive, non-fictive, and academic sources, these artist statements offer insights both into the artists’ motivations and into the history and visual representation of partition itself.
