Generations and Joy

Submitted by Gillian Harrison Cain, ATLA Director of Member Programs

Over the past several weeks a video of an interview with one of my favorite authors filled up my social media feeds and “broke the Internet” so to speak. Wary of click-bait and fake news in my Facebook feed, I wasn’t moved to click on provocative links about what’s wrong with millennials, even if there was a picture of Simon Sinek, a writer and speaker on leadership that I regularly follow. But after I returned to work this week and saw the same interview in my professional feeds, I decided it was worth checking out. And so I watched the video of an interview with Tom Bilyeu on Inside Quest where Sinek addressed a question he is frequently asked: “The Millennial Question.” I’ve spent many more minutes over the past few days contemplating what I’d heard.

Intersections, Innovations, and Inspirations in Digital Humanities

As chair of the NFAIS Humanities Roundtable committee for the past two years, I’ve been honored to collaborate with ATLA’s peer organizations in the humanities, including organizations such as the Modern Language Association, the Getty Conservation Institute, and Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale. ATLA also recently hosted and co-sponsored an NFAIS event in Chicago entitled Digital Humanities & Digital Publishing: Global Opportunities and Challenges.  I also recently participated in the Digital Humanities Forum 2015: Peripheries, Barriers, Hierarchies: Rethinking Access, Inclusivity, and Infrastructure in global DH Practice, at the University of Kansas. As part of these activities, I’ve been inspired by some new digital humanities (DH) tools and initiatives. While most of these initiatives aren’t directly related to the fields of religion or theology, sometimes we learn the most by reaching beyond our boundaries. I encourage you to spend a few minutes as a virtual tourist in some of these innovative spaces.
