Encoded Quilts: Weaving Future Directions

Team: Azza Osman, Ashanti Stiff, Keith Cheng, Brittany Myburgh
Overview

Creating a digital quilt as a Black digital humanities project aims to merge the rich heritage of Black quilting with the infinite possibilities of the digital realm. This medium is a means to preserve and reinterpret the narratives shared today, allowing stories that have been stitched together across spaces to be shared globally. Black quilting embodies a rich narrative of community, history, and artistic expression. It's a realm where fabric scraps are reimagined into mesmerizing works that echo resilience, innovation, and the blending of cultural techniques. As part of our 2024 Black Digital Humanities Symposium, this project aims to explore what it means to weave a future imaginary of Black Digital Humanities.
