Digital Humanities: Creative Activism in the Age of Digital Technologies

The Digital Humanities Working Research Group and the Hemispheric Institute invite you to a symposium on

Creative Activism in the Age of Digital Technologies

Friday, March 30th, 2012 from 2–5pm

Digital technologies have offered scholars, artists, and activists new strategies to address a broad array of social problems, enabling powerful new connections between artistic production, political action, and humanities scholarship. This symposium will explore the relationship between creativity, activism and digital technologies, and examine the new forms of political intervention, collaboration, and corporalities which these have enabled.

The event will include presentations by Faye Ginsburg (NYU), Jacques Servin (The Yes Men/NYU), and Aaron Bady (UC Berkeley), a digital performance by Micha Cardenas (USC), and responses from Diana Taylor (NYU), Michael Stoller (NYU), Tavia Nyong’o (NYU), Nicholas Mirzoeff (NYU), and Debra Levine (NYU).

Hemispheric Institute of Performance & Politics
20 Cooper Sq, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10003

This event is co-sponsored by The Digital Humanities Working Research Group, a project of the Humanities Initiative led by Diana Taylor (University Professor of Performance Studies and Spanish, and Director of the Hemispheric Institute) and Michael Stoller (Director of Collections and Research Services, New York University Libraries) that brings together a broad range of humanists and technologists from across NYU to discuss the role and implication of digital technologies in the Humanities.
