CFP: Exploring Literacies Through Digital Humanities

5 hours 4 min ago

From the CFP:

This past year an informal group of librarians began meeting to discuss the intricate relationships between digital humanities (DH) and literacies—information literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy, data literacy, and the like—with the intention of fostering a larger conversation around the topic and learn more about what’s actually happening “on the ground.” The group was motivated by the desire to help librarians striving to incorporate digital pedagogy into their teaching and those seeking to engage more critically with digital forms of scholarship. To contribute to this conversation, this dh+lib special issue is seeking submissions that explore DH work, be it research, digital project creation and evaluation, or digital pedagogy, through the lens of literacies.

Resource: Digital Humanities Literacy Guidebook

5 hours 34 min ago

About the resource:

tl;dr There’s a new website called the Digital Humanities Literacy Guidebook, made for people just beginning their journeys into digital humanities, but hopefully still helpful for folks early in their career. It’s a crowdsourced resource that Carnegie Mellon University and the A.W. Mellon Foundation are offering to the world. We hope you will contribute!…

The DHLG is an incomplete map of a territory that’s still actively growing. It doesn’t offer a definition of digital humanities; instead, it introduces by example. The site offers dozens of short videos describing DH projects, as well as lists of resources, a topical glossary, job advice, and other helpful entry-points.

Resource: Recoding Relations

Tue, 09/17/2019 - 11:30

About the resource:

Recoding Relations, a podcast produced out of the Symposium for Indigenous New Media (#SINM2018), addresses best practices and models to support Indigenous peoples and research in the digital humanities. The creators currently offer four episodes:

  1. People Over Tools
  2. Indigeneity in DH
  3. Decolonial Digital
  4. Remediation

Each of these episodes addresses intersections between Indigeneity and DH, in particular decolonial futures, making space “for the lived experiences of Indigenous peoples, as well as Black, people of colour, queer and gender non-binary folks,” and decolonizing DH theory and practice. As we begin to recognize that Digital Humanities is more than methods and tools, but also a community of practice that values diversity, equity, and inclusion, Recoding Relations is an essential “reading” for anyone interested in DH, whether librarian or student.
