Last week, the Direktorium of the Institute für Soziologie at TU Darmstadt approved a course proposal for a seminar tentatively titled “Gender and Representation” to be offered next semester. Perusing Internet everyday and subscribing to various social media platforms presents me with a constant flow of material that I imagine useful in my in-class discussion. My problem is of a classificatory nature: I am not a good archivist and tend to disperse links to visual content or downloaded pdfs in a variety of folders that I invaribly forget about. Perhaps, a solution to my problems is to save all these materials here (who knows, I may even start writing more regularly) and create a respository that my students can also access.
Interesting article from the NYT on current projects in the Digital Humanities.
