That’s a wrap for #CDHIcon22!🥂🎉 @ElspethHBrown toasts attendees, organizers, and plenary speakers for an amazing two days of #DHscholarship

We’re settling in for our Evening Plenary! This session is moderated by @sarahrsharma, who will introduce the final speaker of #CDHICON22 — Professor @whkchun! 👏

Chaired by @digiwonk, Session 12 is all about Ethics and Social Justice. It includes research on everything from community-centred archives to understanding the algorithmic harm done by geofences.

Digital Methods 🎛 (session 10)

First up is J. Julia Parke with "The Uncanny Asian: Neoliberal Exhaustion and Oppression as Binary Code", exploring the exhaustion of racial identities not fitting within the western technical imagination.

Session 11 is on cultural studies!

Camila Walls Castillo shares her storymap on women’s textile and sex work in sixteenth century Florence. She explains how Florence is a rare example of an early modern context with a robust dataset of where people lived and worked.

Session 7: Lightning Round!

Beginning with Vanessa Torres on Reimagining Latiné Undocu/Queer Digital Archive Practices - thinking with historical and pedagogical goals.

Session 9 is officially underway! DIY Anti-Racist DH Initiatives: How to Get Started at Your Institution is aimed at staff and administrators interested in implementing equity and human-centered digital research programs.

Session 8 is about critical mapping! 📍🗺

@CassieConnected tells us about two projects: Queerolina and Aparthied Heritage(s). These projects demonstrate how critical mapping supports reparative work, that is, “grounded… ongoing acts of repair, justice, and education.”

In Session 6, chaired by @quinnanya, we’re talking Digital Dostoevsky— a computational text analysis project that engages with Dostoevsky’s corpus using digital humanities methodologies to address formalist questions from literary history.

We are talking digital pedagogies at session 4! First up: Shelley Kopp on the crossroads that the digital age presents for museums. Kopp argues that the original artwork and its digital duplicate have a “complex and muddied relationship.” 📸🖼

In-Person Session 5: "Digital Archives," with Natalie Leduc; Aparajita Bhandari; Bruno Véras; Natália da Silva Perez, Nadav Borenstein, and Natacha Klein Käfer; Aaron Tucker
