Black Studies and Digital Humanities Working Group

Posted by on Thursday, May 6, 2021 in Current Working Groups.

This working group explores the relationship between the fields of Black Studies and the Digital Humanities. In this inaugural year, our meetings will range from shared readings of published scholarship, discussions of digital and/or print works-in-progress, workshops, and invited lectures. Through these various formats, our aim will be to collectively advance scholarly discussions and interventions initiated by scholars such as Kim Gallon, who have sought to “articulate a relationship between the digital humanities and Africana/African American/Black studies (from here on I will call the field Black studies) so as to highlight how technology, employed in this underexamined context, can further expose humanity as a racialized social construction.”
