Cole Crawford is a recent graduate of Oregon State University's MA in English (Literature and Culture) program. He was a 2015-2016 Provost's Fellow, and during 2016-2017 worked as a GTA for the Division of Outreach and Engagement on projects such as Listen Up! and The CO· Corvallis Maker Fair, and as a GTA for the School of Writing, Literature, and Film for the new course "Intro to Digital Humanities: The Virtual Collection."
Cole is a 2016-2018 HASTAC Fellow and a volunteer web developer for the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations. His hybrid MA thesis consists of Laboring-Class Poets Online, a bio-bibliographic database of over 2,000 British working-class poets and their texts, and Respect the Gap: From Big to Boutique Data through Laboring-Class Poets Online, which argues that a boutique approach to data within the humanities is often appropriate. Cole is currently interviewing for digital humanities developer and coordinator roles; more examples of his work can be seen at coledcrawford.com.
