IDRH is hosting a new Digital Humanities group—two groups really—spearheaded by Sylvia Fernández (Hall Center for the Humanities) and James Yeku (African and African-American Studies), and we’d like to invite anyone interested to join. These sessions are open to faculty, staff and students, or anyone else who may be interested.
The groups will meet 6 times this semester, with 3 meetings focused on DH dialogues and readings, and 3 focused on hands-on praxis and collaborations.
You don't have to attend all of the meetings, and drop-ins are welcome, but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can so that we can (a) give you access to the readings ahead of time; (b) prepare appropriately for the praxis sessions; and (c) provide just the right amount of coffee.
DH Dialogues and Readings: Diversifying Digital Humanities
Watson 302, 3:00 - 4:30pm
Friday, Feb 21 | Thursday, Mar 19 | Friday, Apr 24
Readings this semester will include:
- Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, Safiya Noble (2018)
- New Digital Worlds: Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Theory, Praxis, and Pedagogy, Roopika Risam (2018)

DH Praxis and Collaborations
Watson 302, 9:00am – 11:00am
Monday, Feb 24 | Monday, Mar 30 | Monday, Apr 13
The Praxis sessions will be more open sessions where you can come work quietly on your project (like a writing group, but for digital projects); see a demo; learn new platforms; discuss your projects; share ideas.
Thank you to Sylvia and James for developing and organizing this initiative. Let us know if you have questions and we hope to see you there! Please RSVP to email@example.com.
