TLTE doctoral student Mackayla Kelsey selected for Digital Humanities Summer Fellowship
23 May 2023
Mackayla Kelsey, a doctoral student in educational studies specializing in innovative learning technologies, was one of four Husker graduate students selected for the 2023 Digital Humanities Summer Fellowship program, as announced by the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities.
From May 30 to Aug. 11, Kelsey and the other three students in this year’s cohort will participate in this program designed to support their research, scholarship, professional development and creative production skills. Each student will receive a $4,200 stipend.
Kelsey will be developing an educational toolkit using embodied pedagogies. She will do this by reimagining traditional poetry compositions through gestural computation and physical computing methods. Kelsey earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from Nebraska.
For the first half of the summer, the Digital Humanities Summer fellows meet for 20 hours per week in the dedicated shared workspace at the Dinsdale Family Learning Commons. They will support each other through conversation, knowledge exchange and critical engagement, and have structured time to devote to their work. They will also have access to expertise from faculty and staff within CDRH and opportunities to learn from visiting speakers.
