Lecture/Seminar Dr. Julia Flanders: "Building Otherwise: Gender, race and otherness in the digital humanities" 2016-03-09 19:00:00
Description

Dr. Julia Flanders is Professor of the Practice of English and Director of the Digital Scholarship Group at Northeastern University. As one of the Humanities 2016 Lansdowne Lecturers, she will present a lecture titled "Building Otherwise: Gender, Race, and Otherness in the Digital Humanities." The “maker culture” of digital humanities puts building at the heart of scholarship. It also thereby asks us to look at how the digital tools and systems we rely on embody both our intentional critical practice and also the deeper ideologies of the academy and the wider culture. How are gender, race, and other forms of otherness present in our tools and in the things we build, and what kind of space do they occupy there? This lecture will consider the various ways in which we might read questions of difference and social justice in the technical and discursive systems of digital humanities, and the forms of response—practical, theoretical, activist—that may be called for.
