EVENT: 2024 Symposium on African Digital Humanities

The 2024 Symposium on African Digital Humanities: Digital Humanities, African Stories, and Agency will take place on February 15-16, 2024, from 8:30AM-5:00PM GMT at the University of Ghana-Legon and online via Zoom.

The 2024 symposium “seeks to stimulate a dialogue that addresses the intersections of the digital humanities and African stories and agency. We will explore digital storytelling and its connections to African narratives, the extractive politics of platform, AI and African agency, as well as diverse approaches and issues related to building an inclusive digital cultural record for local and global communities.”

Digital tools and platforms, digital archives, computational humanities and natural language processing, and digital humanities education and infrastructure are some of the topics that will be addressed at the symposium.
