Dr. Ashley Cordes, English and Environmental Studies, and 2023–24 OHC Faculty Research Fellow, will give a Work-in-Progress talk "Indigenous Approaches to Meaningful Digital and Environmental Humanities Research" on Friday, December 1 at 12 p.m. in 159 PLC. Please register.

"There is an urgent need to deepen the conversation about what it means to reject complicity with settler colonial and white supremacist research practices in digital and environmental humanities subfields. My project focuses on the responsible creation of Indigenous methods and the extension of care to sacred data. I offer critical retrospectives and methodological interventions from my research in Indigenous artificial intelligence and Kō-Kwel Traditional Ecological Knowledge data governance projects."
