The Caribbean Digital IV


2Untitled

Alex Gil, Kaiama L. Glover, and Kelly Baker Josephs remind us of the upcoming conversation—The Caribbean Digital IV—to be held from November 30 to December 1, 2017, at the Colonnades Club and the Inn at Darden, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia. #SXCD2017

Description: In our evening keynote conversation and over the course of our day of multiform panel presentations, participants engage critically with the digital as praxis, reflecting on the challenges and opportunities presented by the media technologies that evermore intensely reconfigure the social, historical, and geo-political contours of the Caribbean and its diasporas. Presenters consider the affordances and limitations of the digital with respect to a wide range of disciplines and methodologies. Discussions pick up themes addressed in our 2014 inaugural event and, subsequently, during our 2015 and 2016 events – many of which currently feature in our first and second issues of sx archipelagos, the peer-reviewed Small Axe Project publishing platform dedicated to Caribbean digital scholarship and scholarship of the Caribbean digital.
