March 21 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Speakers: Caroline Klibanoff, MIT Museum; Jim McGrath, Brown University; Roopika Risam, Salem State University; Alex Gil, Columbia University

Location: Renaissance Park 909

Join us for a two-hour panel, featuring four scholars who work in the digital public humanities: Caroline Klibanoff, MIT Museum; Jim McGrath, Brown University; and Roopika Risam, Salem State University, and Alex Gil, Columbia University, of the Torn Apart / Separados project. This project “aggregates and cross-references publicly available data to visualize the geography of Donald Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ immigration policy in 2018 and immigration incarceration in the USA in general.”

Each scholar will present on their current projects and talk about how these connect with the growing field of digital public humanities. Following the presentations, there will be time for questions and discussion.

Co-sponsored with the Northeastern University Humanities Center.

More information coming soon!

This event is free and open to the public, but if you are not a member of the Northeastern community, please email Sarah Connell (sa.connell@northeastern.edu) to RSVP.
