Anne Cong-Huyen deposited Asian American DH: Building Radical Communities through Justice-Oriented Praxis on Humanities Commons 3 years, 2 months ago
This is an abstract for a proposed forum that would have been hosted at DH2020 in Ottawa. It brings together Asian Americanist faculty, librarians, and students to unpack and frame research, pedagogy, and praxis in both digital humanities and Asian American studies: What does Asian/Am DH look like? What form might a community of practice in Asian/Am DH take? How best can we support Asian Americanists, whose field is historically grounded in community organizing and activism, in applying DH methods to their scholarship? As we address these questions, we will foreground how Asian/Am DH, like other ethnic studies informed DH praxis, centers concerns of race, social justice, transnationalism, and community. Unfortunately, because of COVID-19 and the added challenges it brought, the facilitators decided not to host a forum at this time, and added a statement about our decision and the politics of the current moment.
