Program Coordinator, IHRC, College of Arts and Sciences
Tracy Jentzsch currently serves at the Program Coordinator for the IHRC. Our mission aims to increase teaching and scholarship in the digital humanities (DH), with a focus on integrating DH into the central academic enterprise of the university while also taking advantage of opportunities to expose digital scholars to contexts that lie outside the academy, addressing a broad spectrum of constituents, including faculty, staff, postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduates. This position also affords the opportunity to foster working partnerships with a broad range of UD entities, including but not limited to, IT, OET, UD’s Morris Library and departments within the seven College of the University of Delaware. Major initiatives include the African American Public Humanities Initiative, The Paul R. Jones Initiative and the Creative Wilmington project. Prior to her position with IHRC, Tracy served as the program coordinator for UD’s Museum Studies Program and a media specialist for UD’s History Media Center within the Department of History.
Jentzsch earned her BA in Communication Arts at Notre Dame of Maryland University, her MA in Liberal Arts from the University of Delaware, certificates in Museum Studies from University of Delaware, and Marketing Strategy and Planning from New York University School of Continuing Education. She is currently pursuing her Ed.D. at the University of Delaware.
