Race and the Digital Humanities with Adeline Koh
Thursday, Nov 29, 2012 | 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm | University of California, Santa Barbara Department of English South Hall 2509
We will be screening Adeline Koh’s pre-recorded NITLE seminar, “Race and the Digital Humanities: An Introduction.” Professor Koh will be participating in the screening from Duke, and will be live-tweeting as we watch the seminar and respond to questions and comments. This will be an especially helpful event for those interested in the intersections of race and the digital but who may or may not have ventured into those arenas yet.
Bring your computers, tablets, smart phones, or use the studio’s computers! This event will be interactive, and with both the seminar and the tweet stream projected simultaneously. A short discussion will follow. If you cannot attend the event in South Hall but wish to participate remotely, you are also welcome to watch the recording on your own and tweet — use the hashtag: #racedh
Professor Koh has also archived materials related to the talk that may be of interest, including slides and links on her blog.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and engaging in a lively discussion in-person and online!
