Josh Honn

Digital Humanities Librarian

Josh Honn is an academic librarian, writer, and photographer living in Chicago. He works as Digital Humanities Librarian at Northwestern University where he collaborates with faculty and students on a range of digital and web-based research and pedagogy projects. He is interested in the critical study and practice of digital literacy, access, ethics, archives, and storytelling. His current research project, How Tall a Shadow You Can Make: Ross D. Brown, Historical Memory, and Archives of Care, seeks to form a hybrid and multimodal work illuminating a life made obscure while exploring black radical traditions, historical memory, archival violence, photography, digitization, and an ethics of archival care. Actively interested in digital NAIS, he’s collaborated with CNAIR faculty and local organizations on a number of digital projects. When he’s not at work or asleep, he’s probably coming up with puns and/or watching words, shadows, birds, and films.
