The Digital Humanities and Teaching Asian American Studies. Friday, October 15, 2021, 11AM to 12:30PM (virtual)
In 2021, Make Us Visible New Jersey launched a campaign to advocate for the inclusion of Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American (APIDA) studies in the K-12 curriculum of New Jersey public schools. Building on this initiative, this roundtable panel explores how the digital humanities, and the resources and methodologies that make up the field, can be used by teachers, students, and the public interested in promoting APIDA studies. The panel will also examine what it means to identify as APIDA online, and how different digital spaces have been shaped by the community. Finally, the panel’s experts will offer practical advice on building digital archives, exhibitions, and other projects, in the name of interpreting and analyzing the APIDA experience in all its diversity.
