In 2018, how have digital humanities scholars taken up the call to expand the literary and historical canon to include groups that have been understudied or misrepresented by the print record? What does an intersectional, feminist DH methodology look like, who or what is it transforming, and how might we practice it in our own institutions? Transformative Digital Humanities: Feminist Interventions in Structure, Representation, and Practice asks how digital work might better support the knowledge and cultural production of women and people of color.
We invite humanities scholars, librarians, archivists, digital historians, and others to connect and participate in a day of discussion that will address questions about the organizational and technical infrastructures needed to support transformative digital research, and consider alternative modes of representing gender and race in digital archives.
Sponsored by Loyola University Chicago: College of Arts and Sciences, University Libraries, the Gannon Center for Women and Leadership, the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities, the English Department, and the Martin J. Svaglic Endowed Chair in Textual Studies. With generous support from Gale-Cengage
