I am a conceptual mixed media artist, addressing issues of colorism and race in my works. I seek to break stereotypes and address issues related to my life. My artwork is steeped in oral history and expresses the narrative of those whose stories have not yet been fully told. As a storyteller, I impart conceptualized stories about the “other” in society. I view myself as a vehicle for ancestral stories to transcend history and remain part of the historical record. The canvas of my artwork is fabric, which I age and imbue with conceptualized images of a forgotten part of the American story. Using images and text, I embed the cloth with the hopes and visions of my ancestors, particularly those whose stories that have remained invisible. Whether woven or stitched, every time my weft crosses the warp or my needle pierces the cloth, I reach through another layer of scorched earth that slavery has left behind and work to reframe critical issues of race.

Have you ever lost a project file? Been unable to find the most recent version of a document? Suffered hard drive failure or had your laptop stolen? Been unable to open old files? Been told your data management plan wasn’t detailed enough? Forgotten which file was which? Even small research projects can generate enough data and digital material to become confusing and vulnerable to loss. Start your next project (or class) out with a plan to keep your project organized and your data safe, from inception until you are ready to share, reuse, or revisit the project whether next month or years from now. This workshop will provide strategies and insights for managing your data for effective collaboration, to meet funder requirements, or to preserve it for reuse or sharing in the future. Part of the MSU Digital Humanities Workshop series, this introductory workshop is open to anyone – students, faculty, staff, the public – from any disciplinary background.
Twine is a powerful yet accessible tool for creating text-based games and interactive fictions that has many potentials for classrooms of all kinds. Twine has been used to create notable games such as the award-winning, controversial Depression Quest, and has been a platform for marginalized game developers to create and share their own stories. This workshop will introduce how Twine can be used to empower student voices in a similar way, and how Twine can model digital rhetorics, narratives, concepts, and theories for the Digital Humanities classroom and beyond. By the end of the workshop, participants will know how to create their own Twine games, and how Twine can contribute to their own projects.
