#rehum15

Exploring relationships between new digital technologies and the webs of power and access that surround them, #ReHum15 touched on a number of themes:

* Criticism of new media technologies and practices
* Archiving of personal and academic texts and literatures through new technologies and media
* Collaboration and solidarity in the digital humanities
* Hybrid practices, interdisciplinary media, and subversion of cultural and political norms
* Intersections between academic research and a public audience
* Public preservation of histories and cultures
* Risk, trial, and error in new media
* Privacy: digital footprints, cloud storage, and Big Data
* Self-destructing data and Do Not Track technology
* Identity as shaped by excessive information or data deprivation

Our keynote speakers for this year’s conference were Wendy Hsu and Whitney Trettien.
