Digital Humanities as Restorative Social Justice: Virtual Heritage, 3D Reconstructions and South Africa’s Township Histories

October 29, 2014
Presenter: 
Angel David Nieves, Ph.D.

In 2013 a group of scholars from across the US approached the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) with a proposal for a new special interest group (or SIG) with a focus on social justice and human rights. As a step forward, the group developed an “advisory document for building collaborative projects, conducting events, gathering sensitive data, and composing scholarly communications with social justice issues and human rights in mind.” This talk will argue for a more engaged form of digital scholarship that promotes social justice praxis.
