As part of the my appointment I’m core faculty the Consortium for Critical Diversity in a Digital Age Research (CEDAR). This is an evolving conversation as we haven’t defined the mission (beyond the title), so there is an opportunity to stimulate conversation. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to bring Dr. Hilary Green (University of Alabama), who Hallowed Ground project explores the history of race at UA. Inviting her to MSU, which has a vibrant digital humanities community, provides a way to explore the intersection between black experience and DH. This focus, which aligns with my own DH work, opens the door to a broader conversation. Stay tuned.
