Skillset: Anthony Wheeler

Hello there! I’m Anthony, a member of the recently born M.A. program in Digital Humanities. I earned my A.S. degree from Dutchess Community College (2016) and my B.S. degree from SUNY New Paltz (2018), both degrees being in Adolescence Education & English! I am currently one of the Program Assistants for the M.A. in Digital Humanities and M.S. in Data Analysis & Visualization, a HASTAC Scholars Fellow, and as of recently, I’ll be starting as an Adjunct Lecturer for the Humanities department at LaGuardia Community College this coming Spring I semester.

Skills:

Outreach:

This is definitely one of my stronger skills. For my project with Raven, we reached out to many different game scholars for assistance and guidance with developing the scope of our digital project. I also have a considerable number of people that I can contact through HASTAC and the HASTAC Scholars network. I’ve also successfully taken advantage of social media platforms, such as Twitter, to contact organizations about talking and working with them.

Developer:

I definitely consider myself to be a dabbler when it comes to development. I’ve spent a good amount of time with HTML/CSS and Python. I’ve practiced developing digital interactive maps, and I have worked closely with Twine in order to create an interactive narrative. I’ve also played with textual analysis tools and bot creation.

Project Manager:

My experience as a project manager is currently limited to my project with Raven. We shared the responsibilities that come with being a project manager since it was just the two of us. However, I am a very fast learner and am confident that I can pick up the skills needed to be an efficient solo project manager.

Designer/UX:

I don’t have much design experience outside of playing with Twine’s design, brief dabbling with Unity, and developing WordPress sites.

Research:

In the past, I have conducted extensive research in areas of gender, sexuality, and race. A lot of my papers focused on women of the Victorian era, but I have shifted gears as a grad student. My current research focuses on race, gender, sexuality, and disability in the classroom. I am currently doing research for a conference I am presenting at in May. There I will be talking about the intersection of race and disability in the classroom and how we can increase equity among students using technology.

Other Skills:

Since I spent my time in undergrad training to be a teacher, I am well-versed in different pedagogical tactics and curriculum development. I can also speak conversational Spanish.
