We always like seeing what the undergrads at the Tri-College Consortium (that’s Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Swarthmore) put together for their annual digital humanities symposium, Re:Humanities. It’s a refreshing (if heady) take on tech, as opposed to the more businesslike approach of a Penn or Drexel.

Tonight, Amherst professor Marisa Parham is keynoting Re:Humanities at Bryn Mawr College. Her research focuses on “texts that problematize assumptions about time, space, and bodily materiality, particularly as such terms share a history of increasing complexity in texts produced by African Americans.” (We told you it was heady.)

She Periscopes digital humanities talks and tweets about things like radical citation and “haunting, possession and data.”

Re:Humanities is free and open to the public. Other talks include “We Are (Not) Here to Teach You: Talking Race and Racism on Tumblr” and “More than ‘Just for Lulz’: Internet Memes’ Potential for Political Activism.”

Friday, Dr. Moya Bailey, who has the killer title of “digital alchemist” for the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network, is speaking about “The Human in Digital Humanities.”
