St. Lawrence University
Fellowship Description: 

Jeff Frank will explore notions of accessibility and the digital humanities. Though digital projects often aim to make the humanities more accessible, as someone who works with teachers and future teachers, Frank wonders if these projects actually make their way into classrooms or impact the ways in which teachers conceptualize their work as humanistic educators. Or—to put it more simply—he is interested in whether and how digital projects can be made more accessible to teachers and future teachers.

As well, Frank hopes to investigate shifting notions of oral communication in the digital age. At present, he is thinking about how to best integrate technologies like podcasting into his First Year Seminar “What Does it Mean to be Educated?”
