OUR THEME FOR 2021-2022
IS COMMUNITY-DRIVEN CURATION IN THE DIGITAL ARTS AND HUMANITIES
Scholars, welcome to the years 2021-2022! This academic year, we're thrilled to introduce our new yearly theme: Community-Driven Curation in the Digital Arts and Humanities. We will bridge disciplinary boundaries to foreground computational and curatorial techniques that merge in ways to lift the otherwise unknown or untold through an investigation of academic, artistic, and archival perspectives. Through mapping, oral histories, and digital storytelling, we'll look at how communities cross space and time. As an important kind of digital public involvement, we will feature participatory art, activist art, and other forms of dialogical arts and humanities projects. Finally, and most significantly, we will campaign for community-based and community-inspired digital arts and humanities to include inclusive and ethical data curation techniques.
