Hello, I am Emily Fairey, 2021-2022 Ethyle Wolfe Institute Digital Humanities Fellow at the Brooklyn College Library. For this site, I have created assignments and lesson plans related to the Hess Scholar in Residence, which will feature Yale Professor Lisa Lowe from 25-29 October, 2021. Lisa Lowe is an interdisciplinary scholar whose work is concerned with the study of race, immigration, capitalism, and colonialism. Lowe’s teaching interests include Asian American studies and critical race and ethnic studies, colonialism and U.S. empire, and cultures of globalization.
I have provided several vetted sources on Asian American and Pacific Islanders' history, literature, arts, archives and data. The theme of all of these assignments was to use digital tools as access points to write about, to analyze, and to present original research. My goal is also to see how the use of these tools could enhance learning beyond the limitations of a traditional assignment. I have provided examples and pre-edited documents as paradigms. All of these digital tools are easy to use, and I am available for technical support and classroom workshops. You can contact me at: Emily.Fairey86@brooklyn.cuny.edu
