The internet touches nearly every aspect of our lives. But, what exactly is it? What are the components that make up the internet? What processes do we need to take to get our work on the internet? Through facilitated discussions, participants will gain answers to these questions. Through historical inquiry, the workshop will help participants draw connections between colonial structures and the origins of the internet. Using this contextual information, participants will start sketches and models for their own projects.

Activists, artists and thinkers engaging the Black radical imagination have urged us to clearly define ourselves, our struggles and our visions of liberation. In her address, Learning from the 60’s Audre Lorde warns “... if I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive." This workshop starts from the premise that coding languages like HTML offer Black Digital Humanities practitioners the opportunity to customize websites to reflect their unique needs and commitments, rather than solely relying on templates that may or may not achieve their needed outcomes. Through guided exercises, participants will gain basic experience in HTML and CSS.
