The digital and the humanities sit at a busy intersection: digital humanities, public humanities, and radical potentialities of the humanities. This talk begins with the dreaming that brought into being the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC), and extends to connecting and sharing our community of practice in libraries to activate our digital and/as public humanities community.

Building from the example of dLOC, this presentation includes ways of approaching and envisioning the digital humanities as the humanities in, for, and of the digital age.

The slides from the talk are available below:
