Afro-Latinx Digital Cultures

Toward Complex and Diverse (Digital?) Humanities

(p.22) 1 Afro-Latinx Digital Cultures
(p.iii) Afro-Latinx Digital Connections

Eduard Arriaga

University Press of Florida

The chapter discusses how digital projects and initiatives developed by diverse Afro-Latinx communities in the Americas could showcase the existence of Afro-Latinx digital humanities. Such initiatives go beyond the scope of both the digital humanities and the Black digital humanities, and aim to decolonize knowledge and enable community members to be agents rather than consumers of technological innovations. Afro-Latinx digital practices, the chapter shows, highlight complex issues such as intersectionality, post-humanism, digital materiality and, data activism as a way to showcase their complex and diverse ways to be human.

Keywords:   Afro-Latinx, digital humanities, Black digital humanities, intersectionality, post-humanism, digital materiality, data activism
