Digital projects do not “speak for themselves.” For a variety of different audiences, we need to make visible and comprehensible the intellectual choices embedded in the digital objects we produce. For Black DH practitioners, this analysis should also identify how power, authority, and oppression is present in the work. We also need to become mindful consumers of this information about other scholars’ digital projects that we encounter. Participants in this workshop will begin to develop a shared vocabulary of technical terms for Black DH projects through close reading and short writing exercises. Aligning with the impulse of the Black radical tradition, this workshop seeks to identify the ways that technical writing can achieve goals similar to other forms of authorship and image-making.
