Amanda Starling Gould
Program Coord, Senior

I am currently the Senior Program Coordinator, for Educational Programs & Digital Humanities, at the Duke University John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute. In this role I administer the FHI’s Story+ Interdisciplinary Humanities Research program (with the incredible Jules Odendahl-James), I consult on digital humanities projects and innovative pedagogical interventions for FHI’s Humanities Labs and Digital Humanities Initiative, and I collaborate with partners across Duke (and beyond) to design creative – and sometimes remote – research and storytelling experiences.

I also co-teach a course on failure, empathy, embodiment, and resilience called “Learning to Fail” for Duke University’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative with Dr. Aaron Dinin, and lead a faculty/staff/community reading group on Mindful Pedagogy and Practice.

Past teaching and research work investigated global environmental health communication, digital media, global environmental humanities, environmental justice, EcoCritical DH, sustainable humanities scholarship, embodied media(ted) experiences, and the narrative, performative, and artistic aspects of the health humanities. My current projects and practices are indeed informed by these.
