Report: Digital Public Humanities Panel

From the report:

On March 21, the NULab and Humanities Center co-sponsored a panel, “Digital Public Humanities”, featuring presentations by four scholars who work in the digital public humanities: Alex Gil (Columbia University), Roopika Risam (Salem State University), Caroline Klibanoff (MIT Museum), and Jim McGrath (Brown University). Throughout their presentations, these scholars explored the public impact of digital projects, asking what digital public humanities methods are and can be used for, who benefits from this work, and where to locate the experiential and political in digital public humanities. At the center of this panel was an interrogation of digital humanities methods for more public-facing work and reflection on the ethical, social, cultural, and political implications of digital work.
