Dr. Sparks’ Talk tonight (Nov 6)

Dr. Sparks’ Talk tonight (Nov 6)

Howdy nice people,

Here are the details for Dr. Sparks’ talk tonight as part of the Digital Humanities series:

“Scrolling is Inevitable, Like Falling”: Digital Rhetoric in Human Rights Activism

Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019, 5–6 p.m.

Meriam Library, Room 252

From human trafficking to police brutality, in our contemporary global landscape it seems atrocities of one kind or another are a constant. This presentation explores the role of non-humans, or objects, in promoting human rights activism. Using the digital outreach of Amnesty International as a case study, I sketch a re-orientation that asks us to consider rhetorical delivery beyond the speaker. What does our growing understanding of human-digital interaction mean for activism? How are human rights issues “delivered” across digital networks? What roles might humans and non-humans play in network flows of information and activism?

If you want, we can meet outside our classroom (ARTS 105) at 4:45 and walk over together. Look forward to going to this talk with y’all.

Kim
