Insights from Managing a Humanities Project: A conversation with graduate students

Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Why would a graduate student want to work on a digital humanities project? Digital humanities projects force us to re-examine our practices and often take on unfamiliar roles, to collaborate and communicate with people outside our discipline and even our profession, and to confront problems that have no obvious solution or established process for solving them. Yet through active engagement in helping manage these projects, graduate students can gain experiences, insights, and skills that support and extend their curricular work: resiliency and creativity in the face of obstacles; active listening and effective communication with collaborators; and an understanding of how to engage problems and lead change. Join this conversation with three current graduate students as they talk about their management roles on different digital projects — their roles, tasks, and challenges — and the personal and professional insights they’ve gained.

Screen/Society--Reel Women Directors of the Middle-East [Algeria]--"Rachida"

White 107 (White Lecture Hall)
Film Screening: "Rachida" (Yamina Bachir-Chouikh, 2002, 100 min, Algeria & France, in French and Arabic w/ English subtitles, Color, DVD) / The first full-length feature film by Yamina Bachir evokes memories of the worst atrocities of the terror in Algeria. The young teacher Rachida is teaching at a school in Algiers, when she is stopped in the street by a group of youths who demand she take a bomb and place it in the school. She recognizes one of the terrorists and refuses. Then she is cold-bloodedly shot and left for dead. Miraculously, she survives. To recover, she hides with her mother in a village far from the city. But terrorism is unavoidable there too. There are no safe havens in Algeria. "Rachida" is a moving story about a community - and above all about the women in it - under the threat of terror. It's a world where you can be kidnapped, raped, shot, where an unmarried woman with a scar on her belly can't go to a bathhouse, because people might think she has had a Caesarean. / -- Winner of 8 Film Awards! / "Bachir-Chouikh stitches a story with few frills: there are brave women, cowardly men, the pervading beauty of nature and a climate of fear." - New York Times / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTRkXDH6uoo
