May 2021 MDAP Seminar
The Epoch of Incredulity: Data, Narrative & Contemporary Crisis, by Dr Tyne Daile Sumner
Bobbie is our resident genomics wizard, who knows a thing or two about data pipelines and draws inspiration from the film Mad Max and his two dear whippet babies. Meet our much loved social ‘glue’ of MDAP, Bobbie!
Living with COVID
With an avalanche of misinformation and fake news about COVID-19 out there, who & what do you believe? Check out our ‘Living with COVID’ campaign, communicating the facts in a fun and engaging way.
Meet Emily, our resident expert on Australian and American politics during Australian federation, and enthusiastic traveller for blues dance and Broadway show experiences. Today, Emily brings a wealth of digital humanities experience to our team, after hopping over to MDAP from The University’s Digital Studio in early 2020.
