Refracting the Digital Humanities

Jarah Moesch, Edmond Y. Chang
2020
Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Self-described as an artist-scholar who explores social justice through art, queer theory, critical race theory, and design practices, Jarah Moesch offers with this course and syllabus an intersectional way to examine the ways digital humanities "function as organizing principles that frame how race, gender, sexuality, and ability are embodied and understood within and through" code, digital tools, and digital humanities practices. What
more » ... exemplary about this resource is the fact that Moesch's syllabus solidly combines theory and practice, exploring and doing. As the course description reads, "By pairing hands-on learning/making with Critical Race Theory, Queer, and Gender Theories, we will interrogate the structures of the tools themselves while creating our own collaborative practices and methods for 'doing' (refracting) DH differently." In particular, Moesch's course attends to a range of digital humanities tools and methods including audio, computer code, and mapping.
