There’s a lot going on these days that I’m excited about – here’s a short list:
Liz Losh wrote up the first of our series of Digital Media and Learning posts about our Trust Challenge Addressing Antifeminist Violence work this year. The post follows on the summer summit held at ASU and announces the start of the Center for Solutions to Online Violence – a collaborative and distributed process of collecting and building resources for those facing harassment.
September 3, I’ll be joining futurist Brian David Johnson for the first of this year’s Science Fiction TV Dinners hosted by the ASU Center for Science and the Imagination. We’ll be watching and talking about Small Wonder – a 1980s sitcom about a robot girl and her family.
The new ASU Center for Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics has launched, and I’ll be helping other affiliated faculty celebrate all semester.
A LOT of amazing work was done this summer with my colleagues on the Vibrant Lives project and we have upcoming shows at ASU, The spark! Festival, and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute.
And classes have begun – this fall it’s my first large format course, Prototyping Dreams, which is running strong at 115 students, and a graduate level Digital Humanities course.
