Queering the Digital Humanities

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

How can the digital humanities be mobilized in the service of queer, feminist, trans*, and postcolonial social justice work? What are the points of convergence and divergence between social justice activism and the digital humanities? While many queers, trans* folks, people of color, and women use technology and digital media for these projects, their work is often left out of mainstream discussions of the digital humanities (for a great critique of this practice, see here). This event brings together several artists and scholars whose digital humanities work foregrounds queer, feminist, trans*, and postcolonial politics.

Cost & audience: FREE! All ages, all are welcome. Bring a photo ID for entry (venue requirement)

 

Presenters: Adeline Koh, Michelle Moravec, Cathy Hannabach
