Bronwen Masemann and Teaching Digital Humanities Analytics

Bronwen Masemann is an instructor at the iSchool at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  She became interested in the digital humanities when she was an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto and was studying the History of the Book. Realizing she was particularly drawn to questions of information dissemination, she pursued a Master’s degree in French colonial book history and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. She now teaches various classes on data management, metadata, visualizing information, and digital humanities analytics.  In this interview Bronwen talks to us about the latter of these classes, which focuses on digital humanities processes, products, and possibilities.
