CEDAR and a Community Centric Digital Humanities
In this episode, I spoke with my colleagues in the Consortium for Critical Diversity in a Digital Age Research (CEDAR). Christina Boyles, Assistant Professor of Culturally-engaged Digital Humanities in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures (WRAC). Christina’s work explores the relationship between disaster, social justice, and the environment. Kristin Arola, Associate Professor in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures (WRAC). Kristin’s work focus on the intersections between American Indian rhetoric, multimodal pedagogy, and digital rhetoric. They join Sharon Leon, Associate Professor in the Department of History and previous guest early in the season. CEDAR is a new research collaborative at Michigan State University. As you will hear, as a group we embrace the idea that CEDAR can be a catalyst to think about the digital humanities rooted in community engagement.

Robert Cassnello and A Digital Public History
In this episode, I spoke with Dr. Robert Cassanello. Cassanello is an associate professor of history at the University of Central Florida. He describes himself as a “social historian interested in public history.” He has published several books on race, labor and politics in the United States. In addition, he has curated exhibits such as The Long History of the Civil Rights Movement in Florida and From Kin to Kant: Turpentine Culture in Central Florida. Cassanello co-produced numerous media projects such as the films, The Committee and Filthy Dreamers with his UCF colleague Dr. Lisa Mills. I reached out to him because of his activism around podcasts as public history form. He produced The History of Central Florida Podcast which won the Hampton Dunn Internet Broadcasting Award from Florida Historical Society. In our conversation we spoke about his vision for a digital public history and it’s implications for teaching and scholarship.

Roopika Risam and New Digital Worlds
In this episode, I spoke with Roopika Risam, Associate Professor of English and the Faculty Fellow for Digital Library Initiatives at Salem State University. Dr. Risam’s research interests lie at the intersections of postcolonial and African diaspora studies, humanities knowledge infrastructures, digital humanities, and new media. Her book, New Digital Worlds: Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Theory, Praxis, and Pedagogy, was published by Northwestern University Press in 2018. She is co-editing two volumes: Intersectionality in Digital Humanities with Barbara Bordalejo for Arc Humanities Press and The Digital Black Atlantic with Kelly Baker Josephs for the Debates in the Digital Humanities series (University of Minnesota Press). Along with Carol Stabile, she is co-director of Reanimate, an intersectional feminist publishing collective recovering archival writing by women in media activism. Her scholarship has appeared in Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, Digital Humanities Quarterly, Debates in the Digital Humanities, First Monday, Popular Communications, and College and Undergraduate Libraries, among others. In our conversation, we discussed the origins of her digital praxis and how her vision for digital humanities animate the projects she pursues and her persona as a public intellectual.
