The story of the digital humanities is often narrated as a decades-long history of the computational manipulation of print. What alternative histories are concealed by such a story? How might we imagine DH differently if we move beyond a focus on text toward multimodal expression and design? What audiences might such work reach? This talk will trace some of the alternate histories of DH, paying particular attention to the visual and the political by engaging the work of feminists, artists, and scholars of color. This talk will also consider how scholarly evidence might be engaged anew through the aesthetic possibilities of the digital archive. By taking up the work of the Vectors Lab, Tara will approach these questions through concrete examples of digital scholarship today.

Join us for Tara’s talk at the Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation, 4th floor Holland Library, Thursday, March 3rd, 3:30-5:00pm
