EVENT: MSU Global Digital Humanities Symposium

Sponsored by Michigan State University and H-net, the 9th annual GlobalDH Symposium will have virtual proceedings March 18-20 and in-person events March 22-23. Keynote speakers are Rachel Adams, Sara Morais do Santos Bruss, Alex Gil, and Bill Hart-Davidson, and talks will highlight intersections of AI, DH, and inequalities.  The full program for both the online and in-person schedules is available online. More about this symposium’s key issues and presentations, from the website:

DH has been a key site for interrogating narratives about disruption, connection, virtuality, surveillance, algorithmic bias, data and resistance, the digital divide, and digital accountabilities. In this moment, shaped by a global pandemic and climate crisis, these narratives and conversations are as urgent as ever.

Focused on these issues, we work at the intersections of critical DH; race and ethnicity; feminism, intersectionality, and gender; and anti-colonial and postcolonial frameworks. Scholarship that works across borders with a focus on transnational partnerships and globally accessible data is especially welcome. Lastly, we define the term “humanities” rather broadly to incorporate the discussion of issues that encourage interdisciplinary understanding of the humanities.

Registration is free for both the virtual and in-person symposia, and will close on March 11.
