Critical Data Practices in Humanities Research 2020
Meeting Description: 

Please join us in our last meeting of the winter quarter on Wednesday, March 17 at 5:30pm PDT. We will read a selection from Ruha Benjamin’s works, and Grant Parker will deliver the opening remarks, building off of his own research, before the discussion.

We will be reading the following works: Ruha Benjamin, "Introduction" to the book Race after Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code (2019) (the book is accessible through SearchWorks), and her essay, "Black Afterlives Matter: Cultivating Kinfulness as Reproductive Justice" (2018, http://bostonreview.net/race/ruha-benjamin-black-afterlives-matter).

Grant Parker joined Stanford from Duke University in 2006. He teaches mostly Latin, as well as topics linked to the exotic and geographic elements of Roman imperial culture. His book, The Making of Roman India, was published in 2008, while new projects have addressed ancient travel literature as well as Rome's Egyptian obelisks. His interest in classical reception is reflected in his 2001 book, The Agony of Asar (critical edition of a former slave's defense of slavery, written in Latin [Leiden 1742]).
