Black Joy in the Arts & Humanities

The David C. Driskell Center, 1214 Cole Student Activities Building
Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM


Join the African American History, Culture & Digital Humanities (AADHum) Initiative, co-directed by the Arts & Humanities Center for Synergy, for "Black Joy in the Arts & Humanities." 

AADHum's new conversation series brings established scholars in African American history and culture into dialogue with emerging leaders in black digital studies. Broaching conceptual quandaries, scholarly innovations and social engagement, the series offers students, faculty and the broader community a chance to dive deep into a stimulating exchange about the current realities and future possibilities of our fields.

This panel will feature:

  • Jovonne J. Bickerstaff, Post-Doctoral Associate on the AADHum Initiative at The University of Maryland
  • LaMarr Bruce, Assistant Professor of American Studies at The University of Maryland
  • Curlee Raven Holton, Executive Director, David C. Driskell Center and Distinguished Artist in Residence, Department of Art at the University of Maryland
