Digital Humanities Workshop: Prof. Catherine D'Ignazio & Wonyoung So

Thursday, December 02, 2021 at 5:15pm to 6:15pm

The Nexus, Hayden Library, 14S-130


Prof. Catherine D'Ignazio and Wonyoung So (DUSP / Data + Feminism Lab) on Audit the Streets, December 2nd, 5:15 pm, in The Nexus.

Audit the Streets is a multimodal research project that catalogs uneven and inequitable commemoration practices in the US landscape. It includes a national-scale database, a data story about places commemorating Christopher Columbus, a zine about counter-Columbus contestations, an investigation of the prevalence of commemorating landed white Harvard men in Cambridge, and a research paper that draws from Black and Indigenous feminisms to theorize audits.


The Digital Humanities Workshop provides a flexible, dynamic space for faculty and researchers to connect with one another about digital research and teaching topics. This semester will focus on innovative approaches to storytelling that combine archival methods and digital tools. Sessions are held on the first Thursdays of the month at 5 pm. (Note the special 5:15 pm start time for our 12/02 workshop!)

This series is co-hosted by the MIT Libraries and Programs in Digital Humanities.
