The Digital Humanities Innovation Lab is pleased to host our second series of @Us, a Critical Digital Humanities discussion group.
This term our them is Disorienting Democracy, and our discussion group seeks to explore more closely what democracy means when it comes to our digital humanities practices. We’ll be thinking about questions of equality, openness, and freedom in relation to the technologies that structure our data, our research, and our methodologies. We’ll be asking how the idea of disorientation can help us to re-orient ourselves towards others, and how we can make our digital and data practices accountable and ethical. Our first group discussion will focus on ethical data visualization.
