Hannah Huber, PhD

Digital Technology Leader and Project Administrator

Center for Southern Studies at Sewanee: The University of the South


As administrator and digital humanities specialist for the Center for Southern Studies at Sewanee, I advise faculty on how to use dh tools in teaching and research, help manage dh projects in southern studies, and attend to the day-to-day administration of the Center. I received my PhD in English from the University of South Carolina and served as the postdoctoral research associate for the Digital Humanities Initiative at the University of Illinois at Chicago where I worked as a consultant on dh projects, organized the inaugural dh conference on campus, and conducted my own literary studies and dh scholarship. My manuscript and digital companion on Progressive-Era U.S. sleep culture is currently under advance contract with the University of Illinois Press.
