    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Panama Silver, Asian Gold: Reimagining Diasporas, Archives, and the Humanities is an iteration of a collaborative, cross-institutional course taught at Amherst College, University of Florida, University of Miami, and the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados. The first iteration—Panama Silver, Asian Gold: Migration, Money, and the Making of the Modern Caribbean—was taught in 2013 at Amherst College, University of Florida, and University of Miami. Students in the course undertake archival research, digital scholarship, and literary studies of the Caribbean through an interdisciplinary lens. Through class assignments, they consider the colonial dimensions of archives, examining how particular facets of identity and subalternity influence Caribbean writers and scholars. The course demonstrates that intersectionality produces a range of interventions that students can make in the archive using the Digital Library of the Caribbean. For example, Yilin Andre Wang’s Mapping LGBTQ+ Caribbean Literature explores the queer Caribbean and its intersections of race, sexuality, gender, class, and nation through maps and timelines that illustrate the rise of LGBTQ+ representations in Caribbean literature. This student project illuminates this important body of work that is often unrecognized in archives. Whether instructors are working on the Caribbean or not, these syllabi offer multiple points of entry into the study of transnationalism, intersectionality, and cross-institutional collaboration through digital pedagogy.
