UT Humanities Center's Distinguished Lecture Series with Marisa Parham
Marisa Parham, Visiting Professor of English / Director of the African American History, Culture and Digital Humanities Initiative, University of Maryland

“Interactivities: difference, computation, textuality”

What is possible at the intersection of Black expressive traditions, digital humanities, and electronic literature? Why is it important that we explore the intersectionality of Black arts and digital contexts? To answer these questions, Professor Marisa Parham will discuss her recent projects, such as “.break .dance digital project,” an experimental digital project that uses Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade as a keystone text to ground musings about time, code, and internet experience. Referencing projects collected at https://mp285.com/sections/portfolio, she will discuss their underlying rationale and why they are needed now.
