Brad Boswell is a PhD candidate in Early Christianity in the Duke Graduate Program in Religion. As a Bass Digital Education Fellow, he gained broad exposure to the range of available digital tools while also learning how to navigate the benefits and challenges of these tools, leveraging the benefits for pedagogical gain. Boswell worked with Martin Eisner, PhD, Associate Professor of Romance Studies, and focused on a Dante-related project with particular emphasis on digital scholarship and pedagogy to impact undergraduate education at Duke.
Filippo Screpanti holds a Ph.D. in Romance Studies. His digital humanities project was led by Alicia Jiménez, PhD, Assistant Professor in Classical Studies. The project was part of an undergraduate seminar in Archaeology and Visual and Media Studies titled “Roman Spectacle.” Screpanti developed a digital geo-chronological platform for displaying the monuments that were linked to spectacles in ancient Rome, to enable students to create a digital storytelling project using digital and visual mapping.
