Jeri E. Wieringa is a PhD candidate in History at George Mason University, working at the intersection of religious history and the digital humanities. Her current research uses topic modeling to examine the role of end-times expectation in the religious and cultural development of Seventh-day Adventism in the U.S. during the 19th and early 20th centuries. She has worked as a research assistant with the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, as the digital publishing production lead for the George Mason University Libraries, and as an editor for The Programming Historian.


The Series

In conjunction with the inaugural Digital Humanities Summer Minor, DH at Berkeley will be hosting a weekly DH Summer Lecture series, highlighting the distinguished work of faculty and scholars engaged in the digital humanities at UC Berkeley.

While this series is designed to complement the coursework of the DH Summer minor, all are welcome to attend and learn more about DH scholarship on campus. This series will be held weekly on Thursday afternoons at 3:15 PM in the D-Lab Convening Room (356B Barrows Hall).

Each week, our featured speaker will present on their work followed by ample time for Q&A and discussion.
