COMMUNITY-DRIVEN CURATION IN THE DIGITAL ARTS AND HUMANITIES: OUR THEME FOR 2021-2022
Welcome to 2021-2022, scholars! We're excited to announce our new annual theme for this academic year: Community-Driven Curation in the Digital Arts and Humanities. Through the examination of academic, artistic, and archival perspectives, we will cross disciplinary boundaries to foreground computational and curatorial approaches that converge in ways to lift the otherwise unknown or untold. We will explore ways communities span place and time through mapping, oral histories and digital storytelling. We will highlight participatory art, activist art and other forms of dialogical arts and humanities projects as an important form of digital public engagement. Finally—and most importantly—we will advocate for inclusive and ethical data curation practices as central to community-based and community-inspired digital arts and humanities.
We look forward to seeing you at our events and workshops throughout the year, whether that's virtually or in-person. We're still working to update our event listings for Fall 2021, but check back in on our events page for more at the start of the year. We'll see you soon!
