Roundtable Discussion: Toni Morrison and the Digital Humanities

We look forward to a roundtable discussion that includes and expands upon the following questions: Where do studies of Toni Morrison and digital humanities meet? How might digital tools or various technological processes enhance our understanding of Morrison’s writing? This roundtable invites papers that explore the relationships between Morrison studies and digital humanities. Papers might explore the pedagogical implications of Morrison and DH, reading Morrison using mixed media approaches, text mining and Morrison’s works, Morrison and digital resources, or Toni Morrison and social media.

A note about the roundtable format: The Roundtable Discussion will ideally have more than 4 participants. Roundtable presentations are normally eight (8) minutes or less in length.
