Taking Digital Humanities has had its ups and downs. Learning new skills can be scary, and the internet is FOREVER. Mistakes there can come back in bite you later. Facing those fears and learning safe ways to create a digital footprint for myself, has been a positive outcome. As a local activist and scholar, I have always envisioned myself blogging or doing online outreach, but I had no idea how or where to start. This course granted me with those skills.
Honestly, I am super proud of the work I did in this course and am getting a little teary, thinking that my time at OSU-Tulsa is over. Olivia and I ended together, with a podcast. I know this sounds sappy, but our constant study groups have helped me get through not only this class, but many others in my time in the American Studies program. I’m so excited I get this lasting project with her.
A couple of notes about the podcast:
- I mention graduating a FEW times. Don’t judge me, I am just really excited. It took me 10 years to complete my Bachelor’s degree.
- We may or may not have put in a 15-second dance break. It’s late and our brains are fried. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
That’s all for me, folks.
