Postcolonial DH

Postcolonial DH
This conversation will examine the intersection of Postcolonial Studies and Digital Humanities. Based on audience interest, we can take up a number of questions and topics:
1. How do issues of race, class, gender, and ethnicity manifest in digital products and sites (eg. social media, digital games, Wikipedia, etc)?
2. How is knowledge production through new media (on blogs, Twitter, digital archives, Wikipedia, etc) informed by the facets mentioned above as well as disparate internet access?
3. How do we advance the conversation on the digital divide within developed countries, but also in the developing world?
4. What kind of pedagogy is needed so that our students become critical new media consumers and producers?
5. Digital Humanities scholarship is mainly centered in the United States and Europe. What supports are needed to do DH elsewhere?
