Laurel Foote-Hudson is a PhD Candidate in Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her dissertation, to be defended this month, utilizes a comparative approach to explore the myriad relationships between Golden Age Spanish and Edo Period Japanese theater. As a digital humanist with a strong interdisciplinary focus, she has worked with partners in Computer Science and Information and Library Science to develop projects which blend comparative and digital methodologies. Her most recent projects include the creation of data visualization tools to track domestic adaptions, leading students though research-oriented boardgame design methods, and building a prototype of a videogame adaptation of the Japanese play Chūshingura. Laurel has also worked in education technology consulting and is currently designing resources to incorporate emerging technology and gamification techniques into humanities courses at UNC.
