This is a public event, please feel free to promote this through your networks.

We will be featuring Dr. Marisa Parham, Director of the African American Digital Humanities Initiative, professor of English, and Associate Director for the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities.

Tuesday, October 6, 9 am – 10 a.m., via zoom

Dr. Parham’s talk, “Purpose, Frivolity, Futures: What, really, is inclusion?,” explores how understanding difference as a technology may help us expand people’s possibilities for participation in civic, scholarly, and commercial worlds. Dr. Parham situates histories of Black playfulness and innovation against inclusion narratives that ultimately seek to flatten or ignore differences.

A zoom link will be sent to all registered participants approximately 24-hours prior to the event.

Note: The talk and conversation will be recorded and archived for future viewing on ARHU’s website.
