Each year, two early career scholars are selected through a competitive process to work with ADHO’s Communications Chair to promote ADHO and its constituents’ outreach mission through the publication of news releases, blog posts, listserv announcements, and social media posts. We are pleased to announce ADHO's 2017-18 Communications Fellows:

She is the Special Projects Coordinator at the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab, where she oversees the Open Knowledge Practicum and other projects. Working on plays and epic poetry of the English Renaissance, Randa’s research focuses on how space is represented in fictional and allegorical settings. She is also the project manager of the TopoText team that develops digital mapping tools for humanities research at the American University of Beirut. You can find her on Twitter @randaelka.
