The Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) at the University of Toronto is hosting a talk by Allie Martin (Dartmouth College), tentatively entitled “Black Covid Care: Building Sonic Constellations of Black Life.” From the talk description:
Her work is attuned to questions of race, sound and power. Her forthcoming first book, Intersectional Listening: Gentrification and Black Sonic Life in Washington, DC, explores the relationships between race, sound, and gentrification in Washington, DC. Utilizing a combination of ethnographic fieldwork and digital humanities methodologies, Martin considers how African-American people in the city experience gentrification as a sonic, racialized process. Her work has been supported by the Ford Foundation, the Smithsonian Institution, the Society for American Music, and the American Musicological Society. Martin is the director of the Black Sound Lab at Dartmouth College, a research environment dedicated to amplifying Black life and decriminalizing Black sound through digital practice.
This talk will be on March 29 from 4:00-6:00pm EDT and is online and free of cost.
