Digital Humanities at CLA 2013

[Initially published on March 24]

On April 13, at the annual College Language Association (CLA) conference, I participated in a roundtable discussion entitled "Digital Humanities Meets African American History, Literature, and Culture." The roundtable was moderated by Doug Steward, Associate Director for programs and Assistant of Departments of English for the Modern Language Association (MLA) and Dana Williams, Professor of English at Howard University and Vice President of CLA. The participants included Adam Banks from the University of Kentucky, Ira Revels from Cornell University, Corrie Claiborne from Morehouse College, and me.

Since there's never enough time to discuss all that we'd like to cover during these sessions, I presented pre-conference and post-conference items here on the site. Similar to my notebook for my upcoming presentation, "A Golden Age of Inspiration for Black Men Writers, 1977 - 1997," I provide links and resources related to my contributions to the CLA roundtable and follow-up notes.
