People, Practice, Power: Digital Humanities outside the Center | Ángel Nieves

People in this story

Ángel Nieves, Professor of Africana Studies, History, and Digital Humanities; Director of Public Humanities

Focusing on the complex infrastructure that undergirds the field of digital humanities, People, Practice, Power examines the economic, social, and political factors that shape such academic endeavors. The multitude of perspectives comprising this collection offers both a much-needed critique of the existing structures for digital scholarship and the means to generate broader representation within the field.

This collection provides a vital contribution to the realm of digital scholarly research and pedagogy in acknowledging the role that small liberal arts colleges, community colleges, historically black colleges and universities, and other under-resourced institutions play in its advancement. Gathering together a range of voices both established and emergent, People, Practice, Power offers practitioners a self-reflexive examination of the current conditions under which the digital humanities are evolving, while helping to open up new sustainable pathways for its future.
