Join the kick-off day panel!

We invite proposals from students, faculty, librarians, and educational technologists for brief presentations on work that demonstrates the role of the digital humanities in recognizing, empowering, and understanding New York City communities of the past and present. We will consider projects that engage students and the public, among other approaches, to explore how the digital humanities can contribute to understanding the relationship between the inequities of our present and the lost voices of our past.
