Regional DH Coordinator, IHRC, College of Arts and Sciences
Tracy Jentzsch reports to the Director of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center (IHRC), and Interim Deputy Provost at UD, Ann Ardis, for work related to 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 College of Arts and Sciences. Other duties include: redesign and maintenance of the IHRC website; serving as a resource for information, publicity, materials, and publications produced by the program, and ensuring that project information on the IHRC website is kept current; social media for DH at UD – @Tracy_Jentzsch; and assisting with the coordination and organization of DH seminars and workshops and participation in regional DH consortium and events.
In addition to serving as Regional DH Coordinator, Jentzsch serves 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.
