Introduction to Digital Humanities

Intersectional Digital Humanities

In their introduction to the edited volume Bodies of Information: Intersectional Feminism and Digital Humanities, Elizabeth Losh and Jaqueline Wernimont write:

By emphasizing the material, situated, contingent, tacit, embodied, affective, labor-intensive, and political characteristics of digital archives and their supporting infrastructures and practices... feminist theorists are also expressing their concerns about present-day power relations and signifying interest in collective and communal consciousness-raising efforts.

Consider how digital archives connect past histories with present-day concerns and the role that intersectional analysis can play in this work as you read Michelle Schwarz and Constance Crompton's contribution to the edited volume.
