Digital Forays in Middle Eastern Studies // A year-long series 2020-2021:
This year-long series starts from a simple premise: What does it look like to think, engage, and do research in this digital age? This is not a call for researchers to simply produce digital outputs - but we live in an ever-increasingly digital world. In order to better activate our scholarship, and to grasp the terrain in which our research questions unfold, we must reimagine our methods, modes of collaboration, and how to participate in a quickly changing digital landscape.

SPACE & PLACE II:
VISUALIZATION & DIGITAL STORYTELLING
April 15, 2021 / 12:30-2PM (NYC/EST Time) / Zoom signup
More scholars and activists across the region are finding ways to use infographics, visualizations and novel techniques of digital storytelling to explore lived experience, push our perspectives, and flip current imaginations of space and place. How are individuals/initiatives expanding the collaborations creating new visual narratives around social issues? How are these visualizations and digital stories becoming a part of research and teaching? How do we account for “data” in these backstories?
