We are excited to kick off our US Latina/o Digital Humanities Incubator series this semester with two CLIR-Mellon Postgraduate Fellows: Dr. Hannah Alpert-Abrams from the University of Houston and our own Fellow, Dr. Lorena Gauthereau!
The first talk, “Transcribing Multilingual Documents in the Digital Age,” by Dr. Alpert Abrams, takes place this Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 at 2:00pm in the Arte Público Press conference room (see poster above).
The two events will be the first of many more talks and workshops, which will center around Digital Humanities and engage US Latina/o Studies and social justice. With this incubator series we hope not only to help participants develop their digital skills, but also to cultivate an approach that engages with critical race theory, decolonial theory, postcolonial theory, WOC feminism, transnational and hemispheric theory, as well as other related theoretical fields. Be on the lookout for more talks and workshops! We hope to see you there!
A special thanks to the University of Maryland’s African American History, Culture, and Digital Humanities (AADHum) initiative for inspiring us to pattern our incubator series after their own model.Read about their Digital Humanities Incubators here.
