Professor Roopika Risam's work pushes DH to address the politics of race, colonialism, globalism, and ethics. She will share ideas and research from her work across recent publications: New Digital Worlds: Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Theory, Praxis, and Pedagogy (Northwestern University Press, 2018), co-editor of Intersectionality in Digital Humanities (Arc Humanities/Amsterdam University Press, 2019), South Asian Digital Humanities: Postcolonial Mediations Across Technology’s Cultural Canon (Routledge, 2020), and The Digital Black Atlantic (University of Minnesota Press, 2021).
This event is part of the Fall 2021 virtual programming co-organized by the DH Center and DH@SDSU. Our Fall 2021 calendar is intended to support and enhance teaching and learning with events geared towards intellectual recovery and the refreshing of our sense of community. Towards that end, we offer book talks by authors of recent, cutting-edge digital+humanities scholarship, tools refresher workshops, and collaborative brainstorming sessions about what DH– and especially DH @ SDSU– means after a year+ of learning online.
