DH3: Global Digital Humanities


Since 2017, the Global Digitial Humanities Working Group organizes talks, discussions, and workshops that critique and remedy Digital Humanities' exclusion of scholars of non-white cultures, particularly those who work in critical race and feminist studies.

Collaborative Goals

Our aim was to re-organize after the pandemic pause and organize a reading group event on topics of critical ecology. We have since had an organizing meeting as well as a reading group reading. Both aims have been met.

Group Outcomes

We enjoyed meeting over Zoom and talking about readings. The books we have read address an interdisciplinary array of concerns about ecology and the various ways in which it intersects with digital humanities and media studies. The reading also informed our thinking on potential speakers to invite for our event in the 2022-23 academic year.
