Scheduled Talks, Workshops, and Conference Presentations


April 22: Keynote for the NC Digital Humanities Institute, Environments of DH

Keynote Teaser: Our digital devices and the data processes we code and encode are deeply embedded in physical and social contexts. I’ll suggest that mineral mines, undersea cables, data warehouses, the command line, AI, and e-waste mounds are locations where DH is Environmental. These are sites that remind us the body does not end where technology begins, and that DH does not begin or end at the device. Messy are the clean categories we might want to use to categorize “environments” when we can perhaps no longer understand separately what is now inseparable. There is no digital work outside the Environment.
