Interrupted and Restricted: Digital Humanities and Ethics in a Time of Crisis
14/05/2021 4:30pm

Interrupted and restricted, research and resulting scholarship has taken a decided turn to the digital to provide materials in the age of COVID-19. In academia, we have seen requests for digital materials at an unprecedented rate. This panel seeks to address not only the forward facing aspects of digital humanities (DH), ensuring access to researchers, students, and scholars, but also takes a step back to question the ethics and implications of what is disseminated via the virtual vis-à-vis human rights.
