How can DH textual scholars respond to calls for queering, or critically reading beyond hegemonic lenses of hetero and homonormativity, digital humanities practices, methodologies and projects? This project responds to and extends the important work done by Bonnie Ruberg, Jason Boyd and Jamie Howe in “Toward a Queer Digital Humanities” (2018). Stretching from the hybrid relationship between colonial Australian literature and contemporary knowledge representation in digitised environments, to queer Black American poets during the Cold War to contemporary Spanish fiction to the ubiquitous, digital literacy that attends AI, we render a queer genealogy with fundamental ramifications for the limited scope of digital humanities today. From the closet to the closest readings, from evidence and interpretation to queering the very structures of knowledge, our project academically engages the task of queering DH.
