Faculty Profile: Jimmy Butts
Jimmy Butts likes weird stuff. He has worked with students at Winthrop, Clemson, and most recently here at Wake Forest to get them composing in exciting, new ways—often employing digital media. He received his PhD from Clemson’s transdisciplinary program called Rhetorics, Communication, and Information Design. Much of his research explores how rhetorical theory intersects with novel digital texts. He has published multimodal work using cinema, web design, and code criticism in Pre-Text, The CyberText Yearbook, The Digital Humanities Quarterly, for Pearson Education, and as a proud instructor in The Journal for Undergraduate Multimedia Projects. He is online at theyellowrobot.com.
Our goalThe DH Community is a program of Wake Forest's Humanities Institute. We are faculty from across campus interested in investigating the emergence of digital humanities as a field of study, and its relevance and usefulness as a research and teaching tool in the humanities.
