Roopika Risam, Salem State University, will deliver the inaugural Uncommon Digital Humanities Critic Lecture on the topic of “Lessons from The Digital Black Atlantic: Amplifying Equity and Justice in Public Humanities.”

Drawing on her experience co-editing the volume The Digital Black Atlantic for the Debates in the Digital Humanities series (University of Minnesota Press) with Kelly Baker Josephs, Risam will explore the lessons learned from producing a volume on African diaspora digital humanities. Risam will address obstacles such as curation, citation, and peer review, as well as share potential solutions that demonstrate how the roots and routes of digital cultures in the African diaspora—from Nigeria to Dominica to South Africa to the United States and on—offer insights on vital transformations of digital humanities praxis.
