Panel: “The Promise of the Public Humanities and their Intersection with the Digital Humanities"

What is the importance of an intersectional framework for the public humanities? How can such a framework expand how we think about data, the humanities, and public-facing scholarship?  What is the potential of the public digital humanities?

Our panelists offer a range of experiences with digital public humanities platforms, as well as invaluable expertise in how to manage intersectional, public-facing work and how to develop a presence as a public scholar. Panelists include a mix of faculty and staff who will informally discuss their work and how we might imagine a future for DH that uses digital methods to engage our ever-changing world and promote positive change?
