POST: The East St. Louis Digital Humanities Club

Howard Rambsy II (Southern Illinois University Edwardsville), writing on the Cultural Front blog, introduces a new project and accompanying series of posts on “The East St. Louis Digital Humanities Club,” an after school digital humanities program for high school students. The program is part of the larger Digital East St. Louis project based at SIUE, and will include a regular series of reflective posts for those who wish to follow as it unfolds.

One overall goal of the project is to increase interest among African American students in projects and careers that involve technology. To do that, we’ll involve them in a series of projects. For the next few months, we are working with the students on audio production.
