Alex Saum-Pascual at the DH Summer Lecture Series

In conjunction with the inaugural Digital Humanities Summer Minor, DH at Berkeley has been hosting a weekly DH Summer Lecture series, highlighting the distinguished work of faculty and scholars engaged in the digital humanities at UC Berkeley. The series is held on Thursday afternoons at 3:15 PM in the D-Lab Convening Room (356B Barrows Hall). Each week, the featured speaker presents on their work before engaging in a lively Q&A discussion.

This past week, Alex Saum-Pascual, Assistant Professor of Spanish, teaching Post Civil-War and Contemporary Spanish Literature and Culture (20th and 21st Centuries), and BCNM Executive Committee member, joined the conversation. Alex's research expands on the relationship between literature and digital technologies, questioning what this means for contemporary literary experimentalism. By applying a methodological scope coming from the fields of New Media and Electronic Literature, she offers a unique contribution to the field of Digital Humanities in Spanish, and to Spanish literary and cultural studies overall.
