    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: How do we teach students to recognize and navigate the structures that shape information—structures that produce absence as well as excess—with critical implications for our possible accounts of the past and what is possible to know in the future? Shannon Mattern’s Data, Archive, Infrastructure course tackles this challenge by drawing attention to different information ecologies and how they are constituted by materials, spaces, technologies, histories, and people in dynamic, political interaction. The strength of this approach is its balance of an expansive theoretical frame that models conscientious and energetic cross-disciplinarity with equally wide-ranging attention to praxis. Each week’s thematized readings bring together a range of perspectives, from archivists, historians, artists, cultural theorists, librarians, literary scholars, and more. Students explore how different knowledge infrastructures are created and deployed through a range of real-world case studies.
