I am an international student from Belgium working on my dissertation in the interdisciplinary fields of Indigenous Studies and American Studies at the University of Washington English department in Seattle. I received my MA in English Literature and Linguistics and my MBA in Cultural Management from the University of Antwerp, Belgium. My research argues that Indigenous ways of knowing offer under-considered analytical tools for reading across the entire terrain of U.S. literature, especially in the second half of the 20th century. I have volunteered with the Quinault Indian Nation Elder program in different capacities since 2014, and am now working specifically on an intergenerational digital oral history project with the Quinault elder program and the Taholah high school. I teach undergraduate courses at the University of Washington in Native American literatures and research methods.

DepositIntroductory Digital Humanities Curriculum for the High School English Classroom

These lesson plans and corresponding handouts introduce students to methods in digital humanities (distant reading, narrative mapping, and sentiment analysis). They are aligned with the K-12 Common Core State Standards and informed by university-level DH discourses. Developed in collaboration with high school English teachers, these materials are designed both to support specific learning outcomes and to be adaptable for use with any course text. This curriculum is part of a project in public scholarship at the University of Washington titled “Spar: A Grays Harbor County K-12 & Higher Education Partnership.”

I’ve heard of similar / analogous […]
