The UT Humanities Center is proud to announce our first Digital Humanities Faculty Fellow, who will be awarded a Spring 2020 fellowship semester! The fellowship is newly available thanks in large part to the generosity of Dean Steve Smith and the UT Libraries.
The inaugural competition was judged by referees representing the UT Libraries and digital humanities research more generally in the College of Arts and Sciences. The scoring of these judges constituted the sole basis of candidate ranking and award outcomes.
The winner of this year's competition is Sean Morey, Associate Professor in the Department of English. His project is titled "Eco-AR: Augmented Reality Environmental Criticism" and will produce an augmented reality (AR) application, tutorials, and digital mapping component to demonstrate how emerging technologies of AR might be used for environmental criticism within the humanities.
Congratulations to Professor Morey, who will spend spring 2020 at the UTHC with our other faculty fellows!
