Join us on September 22 at 2pm for the next B2C2 seminar, “Talk: Critical Digital Studies, DH, and Ethical Collaboration,” with Liz Grumbach (Program Manager for Digital Humanities and Research at the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics) and Sarah Florini (Ass. Prof. of Film and Media Studies).
Critical digital studies and digital humanities share an investment in interrogating and disrupting systems of power and oppression. Yet, they are rarely in dialogue. In their talk, Liz Grumbach and Sarah Florini will discuss projects they are undertaking that put these disciplines in conversation. Undertaken in cooperation with the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics under the broad umbrella of “Technologies of Domination,” these ongoing projects include a two-day design lab workshop on technology and oppression, a collaborative research endeavor with TikTok creators, and a de(con)structive approaches to whiteness and UX. Grumbach and Florini demonstrate how critical digital studies and digital humanities can form a generative partnership grounded in ethics of collaboration and community.
