Cultural Front

Readers interested in discussions of African American literary art, digital humanities, and intellectual culture may want to check out Cultural Front. This blog is run by Howard Rambsy II, a Professor of Literature at Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville, where he teaches American and African American literature. Here, visitors will find Rambsy's commentaries on a diverse range of literary and artistic forms, including poetry, comic books, and novels, and how they intersect with contemporary culture and events. Recent topics include the poets Allison Joseph and Jericho Brown, the activities of an extracurricular Digital Humanities club, and regular updates on an online reading group, both of which Rambsy coordinates. Topics that have been discussed over multiple entries are frequently organized into "notebooks," which may be found via the labels in the right sidebar. Cultural Front also features numerous entries on digital humanities written by Kenton Rambsy, an Assistant Professor of African American Literature at the University of Texas - Arlington known for teaching "the Jay Z class," in which students apply big data techniques to the literary analysis of rap lyrics. The thoughtful, engaging writings of both scholars offer visitors to Cultural Front much to explore.
