Alexandra Saum-Pascual is Assistant Professor of Spanish, teaching Post Civil-War and Contemporary Spanish Literature and Culture (20th and 21st Centuries). She is also part of the Executive Committee of the Berkeley Center for New Media. Saum-Pascual's research expands on the relationship between literature and digital technologies, questioning what this means for contemporary literary experimentalism. By applying a methodological scope coming from the fields of New Media and Electronic Literature, she offers a unique contribution to the field of Digital Humanities in Spanish, and to Spanish literary and cultural studies overall.


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.
