DHSI Topic Briefing – Zachary Foote
Topic Briefing: Toward A More Intersectional Digital Humanities
A comprehensive briefing, addressed to the Directorial Board of Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, that offers practical solutions to improve diversity and intersectionality in digital humanities spaces.
With this activity, I learned how to compress a broad body of research on a particular library-adjacent social justice issue into a brief talk that presented theoretical background on the problem while offering practical solutions to it. I prioritized my most salient points in order to make a succinct and effective pitch to organizational stakeholders.
