The Digital Humanities and the Core Curriculum workshop will offer faculty members a wide array of background, history and theory regarding digital humanities. Dr. Roopika Risam will lead faculty in solving the practical issues of getting digital humanities projects off the ground and creating sustainable platforms.

Roopika Risam is an assistant professor of English at Salem State University. Her research examines the intersections of postcolonial, African diaspora, and U.S. ethnic studies and the role of digital humanities in mediating between them. Her book Postcolonial Digital Humanities is forthcoming with Northwestern University Press, and her co-edited volume Intersectionality in Digital Humanities is under contract with Arc Humanities Press. Her new book project explores digital activism engaged in decolonizing the digital cultural memory of humanity. She is also currently co-editing a volume on the digital black Atlantic for Debates in the Digital Humanities, a special issue of Digital Studies/Le Champ Numérique on global digital humanities, and a special issue of First Monday on decolonial feminism and digital labor. Her scholarship has recently appeared in Debates in the Digital Humanities, International Journal of e-Politics, First Monday, Ada, South Asian Review, Digital Humanities Quarterly, Left History, and Digital Scholarship in the Humanities.
