Recent work by scholars like Ruha Benjamin (on race and the internet), Safiya Noble (on racism and search technologies), and Roopika Risam (on postcolonial digital humanities) has revealed the inextricable links between digital technology and issues of politics, race, and identity. Participants are invited to share work that addresses how digital technologies, online contexts, and/or analog or digital media remediate gender, race, disability, identity and their intersections. Accepted participants will present for 15-20 minutes, alongside other related papers, in a workshop format geared towards feedback. For more information, visit the CNY Humanities Corridor website. Send questions to cforster@syr.edu.
