On October 24, the ARSP leadership team gathered at OSU for an all-day workshop with our four newest partners. Jake Johnson (Oklahoma City University) has already begun working with his students on the project this term, and in Spring 2020 he will be joined by Harold Morales (Morgan State University), Pierce Salguero (Penn State Abington), and Homayra Ziad (Johns Hopkins University).
Over the course of the day we discussed numerous aspects of managing the project from audio recording and editing to tagging and uploading materials into our archive. We shared experiences of incorporating digital humanities projects into our courses and discussed how best to support our students as well as the communities they study.
Once the courses are wrapped up, we'll be able to share more of the work our new partners have done through syllabi and blog posts about their experiences. We are very excited about the continued growth of the ARSP, and that more scholars are encouraging their students to think about religion and sound.
