Queerness and the Digital Humanities

Tweets from the #queerDH unconference session at the 2015 Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria. The conversation was open to the DHSI community and led by Jason Boyd (Ryerson), James Howe (Rutgers), and Bonnie Ruberg (UC Berkeley).


  1. On the first day of the week of courses at the DHSI, we proposed an unconference session on queerness and DH. The community voted on whether to hold the session. It was a great success.
  2. On Thursday afternoon, a group of about 30 DHSI participants met for the session.
  3. The group represented diverse interests and backgrounds from within DH.
  4. Participants began discussing resources for thinking about queerness and DH, and ways that queer theory and methodology could be put in dialogue with DH work.
