Moravec to Present Keynote at Humanities Symposium
Dr. Michelle Moravec, associate professor of history at Rosemont College, gave the keynote address at Misericordia University’s Digital Humanities and Pedagogy Symposium. The University and newly formed Digital Humanities and Pedagogy Working Group invite area educators to participate in a Digital Humanities and Pedagogy Symposium, designed to introduce them to tools that will enliven teaching in the humanities.
Sponsored by the Soyka Fund for the Humanities at Misericordia University, the two-day event took place Friday and Saturday, September 29–30. Moravec’s address, "Digital Humanities in the Classroom," was held at 7 p.m. on the 30th in the Catherine Evans McGowan Room of the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library. The lecture was free and open to the public.
Dr. Moravec sits on the American Historical Association's Digital History Standards Committee and serves as the digital history editor for "Women and Social Movements." Since starting her work in digital humanities in 2012, she has completed five digital history projects and has been teaching digital humanities at the undergraduate level since 2013. Under her co-direction, students at Rosemont recently completed a multi-year website project devoted to the history of the College chapel. Currently, she is working with students on a project investigating World War I through women's scrapbooks and autograph albums.
