        Subject: Digital Access Panel - Record of discussion now available


This may be of interest to subscribers to Humanist in administrative positions
and also historians of infrastructure and disciplinary boundaries in terms of
both pedagogy and scholarly communication (contents and platforms).

A soundbite from a panel on digital access: "understanding our university
budgets as moral documents that reflect in the most revealing way what we value"

Mar 4, 2021 the School of Advanced Study, University of London hosted a panel
Open for Discussion: Digital Access, Inclusion, and the Humanities

· Roopika Risam (Salem State University)
· Gabriela Baeza Ventura (University of Houston)
· Bethany Nowviskie (James Madison University)
· Anasuya Sengupta (Whose Knowledge)

This conversation explores the enormous value of digital tools and platforms in
enabling, promoting and developing the humanities at a time of crisis, and it
also considers how the humanities can help us to examine the challenges and
pitfalls of the digital.

Now available to wider audiences

Discussion touched on "infrastructures of care and infrastructures of
creativity” which are much discussed in the Covid context and also apt for
thinking through humanities computing and the public good.
