In her talk, "Breaking, Dancing, and Making Black Lives in the Digital Humanities," Dr. Parham will discuss what might be made possible at the intersection between Black expressive traditions, digital humanities, and electronic literature, with an eye to describing the “why” of the projects she has recently completed, which can be found here.
