Towards an Open Digital Humanities

We recognize that a wide diversity of people is necessary to make digital humanities function. As such, digital humanities must take active strides to include all the areas of study that comprise the humanities and must strive to include participants of diverse age, generation, skill, race, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, nationality, culture, discipline, areas of interest. Without open participation and broad outreach, the digital humanities movement limits its capacity for critical engagement.

About PhDeviate

@PhDeviate I teach English, with a focus on PoCo--specifically Puerto Rican diasporic literature. American Studies, narrative, and theory, too! I'm very interested in the creation of digital editions.
