The Caribbean Digital VIII

-
Virtual

This year, the annual Caribbean Digital event will be held virtually, with a new digital community project and a virtual gathering. On December 3, we will come together virtually to listen to an exciting group of invited panelists discuss two sets of crucial questions for Caribbean digital scholarship: How do we engage with Caribbean communities in building Afro-diasporic institutions? Whereto Caribbean digital libraries and archives? This year we turn our collective critical attention to the online edition of James Grainger's colonial poem The Sugar-Cane (1764). The new project—Annotating Grainger—follows on the heels of last year's wonderful Collective Annotation of Aimé Césaire’s Notebook of a Return to My Native Land. As a bonus, this year we will continue the work of last year's Directory of Caribbean Digital Scholarship. To learn more or get involved, visit The Caribbean Digital website: http://caribbeandigitalnyc.net/
