ABOUT
Dr. Ashley Sanders Garcia is Vice Chair of the Digital Humanities Program at UCLA. She holds a Ph.D. in History with a specialization in Digital Humanities from Michigan State University. A comparative colonial historian, her first project explores the development of settler colonies in the United States and French Algeria. In addition to her manuscript, "Between Two Fires: The Origins of Settler Colonialism in the United States and French Algeria" (under consideration at the University of Nebraska Press), she is also the author or co-author of a number of publications in the field of Digital Humanities. Currently, she is working on a series of three articles that examine the socio-political world of Ottoman Algeria between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries using close-reading, text mining, data visualization, and network analysis. More information about her scholarship and methods is available on her research site, Colonialism Through the Veil.
