I’m so excited to introduce another new face in our community. Without further ado, Dr. Emily Weissbourd. Laura Fitzpatrick: What do you love about what you do?

As November begins we continue the Meet and Greet series with Adam Heidebrink-Bruno! Mareesa Miles: Hello Adam! Tell us about yourself! Adam Heidebrink-Bruno: Hi! I’m a first-year M.A. student interested in intersectional theory, critical feminist pedagogies, and literature that critiques the neoliberal world order (and its historical parallels). When not mourning capitalism, I can be found in nature (kayaking, hiking, camping), or nerding out (D&D, chess, and other more contemporary tabletop games).

James McAdams: You mentioned in your March 4th keynote address to the 2nd annual Lehigh LSJ Conference a certain moment in time (circa 2004-2008) where social media and various open access publishing platforms manifested a “technoutopianism” where the spirit of sharing, collaboration, and community was, in fact, “real,” before being co-opted by economic forces, trolls, ads, etc. Could you mention an example or two of inspirational Public Humanities (PH) or Digital Humanities (DH) work during […]

Recently, current Lehigh English Department Ph.D. candidates and sole staffers of ‘Merica Magazine Ed Simon (Editor and Founder) and Wade Linebaugh (Assistant Editor) sat down to discuss their joint venture, graduate school, public humanities, and the finer points of laundry etiquette. Their banter has been edited for length and clarity. WL: So the properly ‘merican thing to do would be to start with our origin myth, right? What made the whole thing start?
