About Me[edit]

Professionally, I work at the intersection of technology and the humanities: I teach digital, paperless, iPad, open educational resources (OER), and blended-learning writing (academic and creative) and literature classes on American, British, Caribbean, and African literature as well as courses on the history of technology and gender/queer studies. Personally, I am: a collector of vintage china, umbrellas, and hats; a chocolate ice-cream connoisseur; an advocate for all things open (technology and education in particular); a feminist; and an oil painter.

Work on Wikipedia[edit]

Work by my students[edit]

I usually teach a senior Caribbean literature seminar in the late Spring, right before graduation. As any high-school teacher knows, this is not the best time to assign essays and difficult texts, so in the Spring of 2015, I decided to divide the class into teams and have them create Wikipedia articles on the assigned novels using the Wikipedia: Manual of Style/Novels as a template. These are the results: Team 1: Robert Antoni's WhatlessBoys/sandbox, Team 2: Shani Mootoo's Valmiki's Daughter, and Team 3: As Flies To Whatless Boys (Links to a Google Document).

Philosophy of Editing: Why Wikipedia[edit]

I believe that people fundamentally want information to be free. If we want to live in a free world, then we should work towards liberating information from artificial constraints.

Closed vs Open Sources[edit]

In the spirit of Wikipedia, I primarily use references that can be accessed freely online. If I can't find enough documentation, then I will use closed sources. In an ideal world, any reader from any where in the world should be able to access the full text of the reference cited.
