I am on the English faculty at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon, and for the past 10 years I have been working to embed digital humanities practices into my lower-division community college humanities courses–writing and literature. I am currently teaching one of the first Introduction to Digital Humanities courses taught at community college. I blogged about developing the course for community-college students here.

With Angel David Nieves and Siobhan Senier I edited the volume People, Practice, Power: Digital Humanities Outside the Center, part of the Debates in the Digital Humanities Series edited by Matthew K. Gold and Lauren F. Klein.

In July 2015 I served as project director for an NEH Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities Summer Institute for community college faculty, “Beyond Pockets of Innovation, Toward a Community of Practice.” This was in response to findings of an NEH Office of Digital Humanities Start-Up grant, “Bringing Digital Humanities to the Community College and Vice Versa,” for which I served as project director.  I started a multi site Digital Commons open to all community college faculty and those interested in bringing DH to open access institutions (dhatthecc.lanecc.edu); I maintain a blog here: https://blogs.lanecc.edu/dhatthecc/  My essay, “The Whole Game: Digital Humanities at Community Colleges” was published in Debates in the Digital Humanities 2016 edited by Matthew K. Gold and Lauren Klein.
