I am new to digital humanities, having taught one online course and looking to expand my knowledge of the field and get ideas for enhancing my courses and my own research. In my "day job" (non-digital), I research representations of race and adoption in American literature and culture. Technology--in the form of blogs, websites, and documentaries--are increasingly part of the way that knowledge about adoption is created. I recently published a book with Michigan UP, called _Kin of Another Kind: Transracial Adoption in American Literature_, and my current research examines adoption and other anomalous families in literature and documentary film.
