Well, I could definitely write an introduction of myself and my credentials as a DH scholar. But I have very few. I’m an undergraduate student of creative writing. That said, that doesn’t mean I’m not constantly thinking about the digitization of our world.
I constantly get poked fun at by my friends because, as they say, “all I want to do is talk about space robots”. And there’s a nugget of truth in there. I do want to talk about space robots because I firmly believe that the future development of the human race requires both of those things.
That’s a bit far afield from DH studies though so I’ll reign it back a bit- it is however useful in that it provides a bit of context for how I view digital studies: A gateway to greater and brighter futures.
Not only that, but a necessity for progress.
