This week, our Director of Research, Dr. Carolina Villarroel, and Arte Público Press Executive Editor and Associate Professor of Spanish, Dr. Gabriela Baeza Ventura, are visiting the digital humanities center at Stanford University. During their time there, they will also be participating in a half-day roundtable: Reflexiones HD:DH Reflections: A roundtable on the Digital Humanities in Latin American studies. They will be delivering the keynote on Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage/Arte Público Press. The Stanford Library Blog describes the event as follows:
This half-day roundtable celebrates the vibrant world of Latin American and Hispanic Digital Humanities, and is meant to introduce the Stanford Latin American Studies community (and others) to this important and growing community of scholarly practice.
The roundtable coincides with the visit to Stanford of the two founders of the first Latinx DH research center in the United States (hosting the “Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage/Arte Público Press” project, at the University of Houston), and anticipates the upcoming Digital Humanities 2018 conference in Ciudad de México, marking the first time this long-running international conference will be held in the Global South. Principal participants of both these efforts will join with local researchers working in the hispanophone digital humanities.
We hope our Bay Area colleagues will join us on Feb. 2, 2018 for this round table!
