Re:Humanities ’14 Play. Power. Production.
Bryn Mawr || Haverford || Swarthmore
Re:Humanities is the first national digital humanities conference of, for, and by undergraduates, now in its fourth year. Our theme for Re:Humanities 2014 is “Play. Power. Production.” The Re:Hum Working Group, comprised of students from Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore Colleges, seeks undergraduates who engage with contemporary currents in digital humanities, scholars who both apply digital methodologies in traditional humanities research while posing critical humanities questions about those technologies. We invite undergraduates who will think interdisciplinarily, theorizing relationships between new digital technologies and the webs of power and access that surround them:
- Postcolonial Studies, Queer Studies and New Media Studies.
- Criticism of New Media Technologies.
- Collaboration and Solidarity in the Digital Humanities.
- Game Analysis, Design and Play.
- Digital Production and “Maker” Culture.
- Performance and Affect in Participatory Media
- Appropriation Culture: Theory and Practice.
- Global and Transnational Perspectives on the Digital Humanities.
