After being nominated for a Digital Humanities Award in the category Best exploration of DH failure/ limitations, “Digital Humanities and the Climate Crisis, a Manifesto” has won!
Contributing to “Digital Humanities and the Climate Crisis, a Manifesto” are our very own: Alicia Peaker, Kaiama Glover, and Ana Lam who worked alongside other Digital Humanities scholars: Anne Baillot, James Baker, Madiha Zahrah Choski, Alex Gil, Walter Scholger, Tortsen Roeder, and Jo Lindsay Walton. A collaborative piece, the manifesto scrutinizes the impacts of digital humanities technologies on our environment and impels the global community of digital humanities scholars to take action.
