Roopika Risam, Assistant Professor of English at Salem State University, will deliver a talk entitled, "Decolonizing Digital Humanities: Towards New Communities of Practice" on March 11, 4-5:30 p.m., in Burling Lounge. This talk takes a critical look at what it means  –  and does not mean  –  to “decolonize” the digital humanities. It raises concern about the undertheorized ways that “decolonization” has been marshalled in response to digital humanities while examining how postcolonial critique can move the field forward, and how it influences digital humanities practice in existing projects.

This Digital in Public event is co-sponsored by the Center for the Humanities, Digital Bridges, and the Digital Liberal Arts Collaborative.
