forum: breaking down barriers: social justice, cultural memory & dh
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Center for Digital Research in the Humanities will hold its Fifth Annual Nebraska Forum on Digital Humanities on 6-7 April 2017.
"This year, the Nebraska Forum on Digital Humanities will feature digital scholarship that engages with communities in meaningful ways. The participants are each involved in projects and research that work to uncover traditionally silenced or under-represented communities, challenging systems of discrimination. With this forum, we hope to encourage the digital humanities community to create and employ critical technologies and methodologies in concert with and in relationship to more public forms of scholarship. These projects provide potential models of engagement using the digital medium to move scholarship and scholarly activity through communities. Topics of discussion will include: What contributions can digital scholars offer community-based social justice initiatives? What new audiences for digital scholarship are there and how do they form? How do digital projects circulate scholarly work in communities? What are the implications of engaging in public-facing scholarship?"
