EVENT: Black Digital Humanities Symposium

The Black Digital Humanities Lab will host a Black Digital Humanities Symposium on April 12. The symposium “brings together graduate students, practitioners, community activists, and artists to discuss the future of this field, exploring what it means to come together to weave Black futures.” Sessions include panels on representation & resistance in digital media and Afrofuturist perspectives, roundtables on black geographies and changing landscapes, and a workshop on AI ethics in the digital humanities.

The Keynote Speaker will be Catherine Knight Steele, an Associate Professor of Communication at the University of Maryland who also directs the BlackCommunication and Technology Lab (BCaT) and the Digital Studies in Art & Humanities graduate certificate program for the university.

The event will be virtual, and admission is free with registration. An access link will be sent to those registered closer to the date.
