Today we are pleased to share a new episode of The DH Podcast. We sat down with Dr. Martha Nell Smith, a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher, Professor of English, and Founding Director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland. Her numerous print publications include five singly and coauthored books, including —Emily Dickinson, A User’s Guide; Companion to Emily Dickinson; and Open Me Carefully: Emily Dickinson’s Intimate Letters to Susan Dickinson. She has also authored scores of articles and essays in journals and collections such as American Literature, Journal of Victorian Culture, South Atlantic Quarterly, Women’s Studies Quarterly, ESQ, and A Companion to Digital Humanities. Dr. Smith is also the executive director of the Emily Dickinson Archives 2. Dr. Smith and I chat about founding the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), building the Emily Dickinson Archives 2, and diversity in DH.
