We hope you join us on Monday, April 26th from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM for our first official installment in a series born out of our commitment to social justice and anti-racism work within our community. The Commons team is excited for this to be the first of many open virtual events where we can support student voices in their pursuit of justice through our open framework. See more information on Visions of Open: Digital Humanities & Archival Praxis below. A link to registration can be found at the bottom of the post, as well as here. We hope to see you there!
This roundtable features the work of four Graduate Center students/alumni whose projects use CUNY-created open platforms to engage intersections of open pedagogy, the digital humanities, and archival praxis. August Smith (Sociology) and Daniel Valtueña (LAILAC) will share their experiences of the Mina Rees Library’s Open Pedagogy Fellowship as they brought their courses into alignment with open resources and inclusivity more broadly.
Wendy Barrales (Urban Education) will describe her work on the Women of Color Archive, currently in development on Manifold. Riah Lee Kinsey (MALS/DH) will share from their 2017 capstone project “Beyond the Vale,” a data visualization project that explored the history of Kinsey’s enslaved ancestors in antebellum North Carolina. Hosted by Anthony Wheeler (Urban Education) and Elvis Bakaitis (Interim Head of Reference).
This event is co-sponsored by the Mina Rees Library, the CUNY Academic Commons, Manifold, and the M.A. Program in Digital Humanities Program.
