Catherine Winters, co-host of the Careers in the Public Humanities Podcast, invited me on the program to talk about my current gig as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Public Humanities at Brown University. It’s a pretty candid conversation about the life of a postdoc in higher ed these days. I also talk about public humanities, digital humanities, and why “digital public humanities” seems like a productive term that creates space for particular kinds of work and methodologies in academic contexts. And I use the adjective “tricky” a lot, which seems worth noting in the historical corpus of descriptives for this kind of labor in this particular time and place. Thanks Catherine! I hope some folks find these reflections helpful!
