Professor Goldsmith's project will synthesize her scholarly and pedagogical interests and draw upon resources at Duke including the Franklin Humanities Institute, the PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge, the Wired! Lab, and the Rubenstein Library.  Among her partners will be Associate Professor of History Philip Stern, Associate Curator of Collections Sara Seten Berghausen, PhD Lab Co-Director and Professor of Romance Studies David Bell, and Associate Research Professor in Visual and Media Studies Victoria Szabo.  Professor Goldsmith plans to develop a mapping project focusing on Edith Wharton’s New York, to build on her work with Ursinus’s Council for Undergraduate Research team to develop scalable research projects for undergraduate humanities students throughout the curriculum, and to collaborate on developing pathways to sustain humanities undergraduate research as a distinctive feature of the Duke and Ursinus undergraduate curricula.
