Graduate Workshop with Dr. Roopika Risam: Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Practice: Visualizing Migration

28 January 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

The CDHI cordially invites all UofT graduate students to attend a workshop with Dr. Roopika Risam, our first speaker in the Winter 2022 Visiting Speaker Series.  Dr. Risam is Chair of Secondary and Higher Education and Associate Professor of Education and English, Salem State University, as well as a principle investigator of the Digital Ethnic Futures Consortium.

Join us January 28 at 2:00pm EST for a graduate-student workshop on Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Practice: Visualizing Migration. In this workshop, participants will explore the application of postcolonial digital humanities practices to data visualization of migration. We will explore the limitations and affordances of quantitative and qualitative approaches to data visualization of vulnerable populations. We’ll also engage in speculative thinking about approaches to data visualization that resist colonial frameworks.

The workshop will take place virtually over Zoom and be capped at 25 participants.

Registration is free and open to all UofT graduate students.
