Diversity and Digital Pedagogy Workshop (11/7/17)

November 7, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Gabrielle Foreman, Ned B. Allen Professor of English and Professor of Black American Studies & History at The University of Delaware, will lead a workshop on Diversity and Digital Pedagogy, Tuesday, November 7, 2-3:30pm, at The University of Iowa Main Library, Digital Research and Publishing Classroom. Registration is required.

Dr. Foreman will introduce the Colored Conventions Project, including valuable teaching resources and public engagement methods in this trans-disciplinary workshop open to graduate students, junior faculty, and others. The workshop will include a short presentation on what ColoredConventions.org does and does not do, how we might incorporate it into teaching, and align it with our research. Professor Foreman will then lead a conversation about ways to use these materials and to advocate for digital projects in both undergraduate and graduate curricula. As part of the conversation, she will discuss way that graduate students and junior faculty in the humanities, in particular, can make digital humanities work legible on the job market and for tenure and promotion.
