Posted in Announcements, Events

Nieves  Talk FlyerThe Digital Scholarship Lab invites you to attend a lecture, Intersectional Cartographies- Social Justice, Digital Humanities, Practices, and 3D Virtual Heritage in Soweto, Johannesburg, by guest speaker Angel Nieves.

Nieves’ talk will address the question: Can the digital reconstructions of difficult histories be used to harness the tools of restorative social justice in a preservation-based practice that combines both tangible and intangible heritage? He will also address the capabilities of digital humanities, digital ethnography, and the endangered nature of archives across South Africa- specifically those related to the Soweto Uprisings of June 1976. The talk will be held from 11 a.m- 12:15 p.m on Monday, Oct. 24 at Hill Memorial Library.

On Thursday, Oct. 25, Nieves will host a digital pedagogy workshop, Race, Social Justice, and DH: Applied Theories and Methods. The workshop will show how- through an interdisciplinary, intersectional, and critical race theory framework- both race and social justice can be central to digital humanities teaching, pedagogy, and practice. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m- 12 p.m. at Middleton Library in the Dean’s Conference Room.
