Welcome to Postcolonial Digital Humanities. The site is run by Adeline Koh and Roopika Risam, scholars working at the intersections of postcolonial studies and digital humanities and founders of #dhpoco: the Postcolonial Digital Humanities Tumblr.
The goal of our site is to provide a home for postcolonial digital humanities studies on the web and a global exploration of race, class, gender, sexuality, and disability within cultures of technology. We envision postcolonial digital humanities as an emergent field of study invested in decolonizing the digital, foregrounding anticolonial thought, and disrupting salutatory narratives of globalization and technological progress (See our mission statement and founding principles).
We have three major goals: to define the postcolonial digital humanities, to locate ways postcolonial studies can and should shift in response to digital changes and challenges, and to write alternative genealogies of the digital humanities.
Watch this space as we continue the work of postcolonial digital humanities. We welcome scholars to join our work by submitting posts or ideas.
