The Caribbean Digital II: Histories, Cartographies, Narratives
The Digital Black Atlantic Project‘s Caribbean Digital II conference convenes on December 4, 2015, with an afternoon of multiform panel presentations that will engage critically with the digital as praxis. Panelists will reflect on the challenges and opportunities presented by the media technologies that ever more intensely reconfigure the social, historical, and geo-political contours of the Caribbean and its diasporas. Presenters will consider the affordances and limitations of the digital with respect to their particular methodologies – notably, representing the past, historicizing space, and telling stories. Discussions will pick up themes addressed in the 2014 inaugural event as well as anticipate the launch of sx:archipelagos, a peer-reviewed Small Axe Project publishing platform dedicated to scholarship of and emerging from the Caribbean – set to go live in 2016.
