The rising interdisciplinary, cross-institutional, and transnational collaborations in digital humanities pedagogies are at once constituting and constituted by ground-up solidaries against neoliberalism, sexism, and racism in higher education. These networks of knowledge-making and community-building, however, also bring with them unique place-based and role-centered challenges:
In what ways and to what extent might we able to build and sustain a common ground when contingencies and pracarities are at the heart of where we are and what we do?
In what ways might we still engage our institutions and this increasing “trend” towards professionalizing curricular and co-curricular programs around digital literacy, digital computation, and digital competencies?
Bringing together faculty, librarians, staff, and “alt-ac” digital humanists, this proposal aims to engage colleagues and participants at the ACH conference who are committed to building inclusive pedagogical strategies that advance an intersectional feminist ethos of mutual empowerment and shared expertise. Conceptualized as a “track” or “stream” of linked sessions, this proposal makes the resources of an in-depth workshop on inclusive digital pedagogy available in more formats, to more facilitators, and for more ACH community members.
The goal of these linked sessions is to move toward intersectional feminist conversations around digital pedagogy that empower students, equip faculty, and acknowledge diverse forms of labor and contribution. These sessions also seek to promote and cultivate digital pedagogy communities informed by movements like #transformDH, #AnticolonialDh, #OurDhIs, postcolonial DH, and more broadly critical cultural studies. Starting with an acknowledgement of the Indigenous territories on which we live and work, a diverse slate of facilitators will work to reimagine traditional hierarchies and structures of power, center ignored and minoritized voices, and move toward addressing the still unanswered questions of co-shaping a more equitable and inclusive digital future.
