I’m Assistant Research Professor of Digital Humanities in Brigham Young University’s Office of Digital Humanities. I imagine, design, and manage digital scholarship projects in collaboration with faculty, colleagues, and students. I also teach classes in our Digital Humanities and Technology minor. I’m passionate about integrating digital approaches into pedagogy. Prior to coming to BYU, I worked at the Centers for Digital Scholarship at both Brown University and Emory University. I was Digital Humanities Librarian at Brown and Digital Humanities Strategist and Lecturer of English at Emory. At both schools, I managed large, multi-year, grant-funded projects in collaboration with faculty, librarians, graduate students, and other staff. These projects included the digitization of previously classified documents about Brazil / US relations; a digital edition of and edited collection about a 17th-century book of alchemy; the paved-over landscape and history of the Battle of Atlanta; the literary networks of writers in Northern Ireland; and the relationship among poets and editors in mid-century modern American poetry. I completed my Ph.D. at Emory University, investigating the relationships among technology, media, and psychological trauma. After that, I taught modern and contemporary American literature as well as courses on media studies, digital culture, and war fiction for a year at Emory and another year at Clemson University. I then became Emory’s first CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow and Emerging Technologies Librarian. Somewhere in there, I co-edited both a book and a journal issue on steampunk, edited a cluster at #Alt-Academy, and wrote for the group blog ProfHacker. I am the elected Secretary of the international Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations, an elected member of the Modern Language Association‘s Delegate Assembly, and an appointed member of the MLA’s Program Committee. I am a past member of the Executive Councils of the MLA and the Association for Computers and the Humanities. I use Twitter on occasion and track my publications with ORCID.

Zak Jones completed his Honours BA in English, MA in English [In the Field of Creative Writing] at University of Toronto, where he is currently a Ph.D. student studying narratives of defeat in American “epics.”
An aspiring minimalist, I do all the things! My many roles constellate within a clarifying praxis of supporting creative vision. I teach writing and rhetoric with an emphasis in digital multimodality. I enjoy making short films as digital scholarship. My book on all of this is due out later this year from the #writing series, Colorado State University Open Press. I’ve listed my disciplinary identitification @ Left. Thankfully, the field in which I identify my presence, Rhetoric and Composition, is gloriously capacious. Within the field, I’ve found ways of engaging a range of studies and practices that invite me to explore my interests in:
- Digital Media
- DIY Digital Filmmaking
- Visual Rhetoric
- Writing Program Administration
