Digital Black Atlantic projects and a journal referenced in the interview:
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.
On Thursday, March 4, 2021, the MA Program in Digital Humanities celebrated the publication of The Digital Black Atlantic, edited by Kelly Baker Josephs (CUNY Graduate Center/York College) and Roopika Risam (Salem State University). Joining the session were 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).
