Image Text Interface co-hosted the
interactive calligraphy demonstration on October 23, 2012. Claudine Jaenichen,
Anna Leahy, and Morgan Read-Davidson worked with librarian Scott Stone to
develop an educational experience for students in Art and English in
conjunction with the Leatherby Libraries’ temporary calligraphy exhibit.
Claudine Jaenichen works with
undergraduate graphic design and psychology students in evacuation field
studies testing cognitive recall of written, audio, and visual presentations of
evacuation information. Her students receive internal university research
grants for this project.
TAB: The Journal of Poetry & Poetics supports one
Graduate Assistant, paid with a small hourly wage funded through Wilkinson
College’s work-study budget. In addition, MFA students will be invited to join
the journal staff in 2013-2014; those staff will evaluate submissions and
participate in the copyediting and layout of monthly electronic issues.
Ideally, some roles would be paid internships, though there is currently no
funding for this student research.
The literary journal dirtcakes, which is housed off-campus
and edited by Catherine Keefe, uses
student interns in conjunction with internship course credit through Chapman
Science Librarian Douglas Dechow teaches
a course in Humanities Computing for the Department of English. The long-term
goal is to introduce students across Wilkinson College to the digital
humanities and to encourage arts and humanities students to participate in the
Minor in Game Design. Morgan Read-Davidson is also working toward course goals linked
to digital representation and dissemination of text and image.
Jim Blaylock and Douglas Dechow are in
the initial discussion stages to bring the Philip K. Dick Conference to Chapman
University in 2016.
