Book Release: The Digital Black Atlantic
"The CUNY M.A. Program in Digital Humanities invites you to join us on Thursday, March 4, 2021 from 4pm-5pm to celebrate the publication of The Digital Black Atlantic, co-edited by Kelly Baker Josephs (CUNY Graduate Center/York College) and Roopika Risam (Salem State University). This volume is part of the University of Minnesota Press's Debates in the Digital Humanities series.
Joining the session will be volume contributors Sonya Donaldson (New Jersey City University), Danielle Olson (MIT), Jamila Moore Pewu (California State University, Fullerton), and Toniesha L. Taylor (Texas Southern University).
This timely collection of essays about the relationship between digital humanities and Black Atlantic studies offers critical insights into race, migration, media, and scholarly knowledge production. It spans the African diaspora’s range—from Africa to North America, Europe, and the Caribbean—while its essayists span academic fields—from history and literary studies to musicology, game studies, and library and information studies.
Please register for this event on Eventbrite. The event will be held via Zoom, and meeting details will be emailed to registrants on the day of the event."
Celebrating the Publication of The Digital Black Atlantic is co-sponsored by the Frederick E. Berry Library, Salem State University; and the Ph.D. Program in English and IRADAC, CUNY Graduate Center
