Critical Digital Humanities is putting together a roundtable for this year’s Cultural Studies Association. The conference will be held from May 21-24, 2015 in Riverside, California at the Riverside Convention Center. This year’s theme is Another University Is Possible: Praxis, Activism, and the Promise of Critical Pedagogy. In keeping with this year’s theme, we would like to explore the question “What does critical digital humanities look like?”
The goal of this roundtable is to open a dialogue about critical approaches to digital humanities. Each participant will give a brief 5-7 minute provocation followed by a discussion.
Some topics for consideration, but not limitation:
–critical approaches to digital pedagogy, big data projects, data visualization, and digital scholarship
–specific campus initiatives, classes or programs that fall under the category of “critical digital humanities”
–limitations of critical digital humanities
–theory vs. practice in DH
–cultural studies and DH
–public scholarship, public humanities, and public history
Building off of the terrific energy from THATCamp, we would like to invite the DHSoCal community to consider having a role in this conversation! If you are interested, please contact Steve Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you are interested in discussing by Dec 1, 2014. Also, feel free to pass this on to friends and colleagues.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Steve Anderson, Rochelle Gold, and Sarah Lozier
