Cover of new book

Based on the auto-ethnographic work of a team of scholars who developed the first Black Digital Humanities program at a research institution, UMD scholars Catherine Knight Steele and Jessica Lu (with Kevin Winstead) have authored Doing Black Digital Humanities with Radical Intentionality: A Practical Guide. Published in 2023 by Routledge, this important new work centers Black scholars, Black thought and Black studies in the creation of digital research and programming, drawing on the authors’ experiences working with UMD’s African American Digital Humanities Initiative.
