Has it been that long?

Well – I’ve never really been a blogger. I have a blog. But never got much into lengthy and regular blogging.

From Situated Knowledges, Partial Truths, Extended Ethnographies, Locating of Selves to Ethnography of Fragments/Fragmented Access

Digital Humanities and the Subaltern – who gets to be “human”?

In a series of tweets, notes and paper abstracts so far I’ve been asking and thinking through this question in relation to why Digital Humanities – and how Digital Humanities can or should be mobilized for social justice.
