Designing a research study requires first understanding the existing literature on a specific topic. Prior to running their workshops, our RAs engaged with a wide range of scholarship on Black Digital Humanities, Black Digital Studies, and Black Studies, at large.
We have created a Zotero group with the texts we have engaged with and this will continue to update through the summer as we progress through the project.
