Hybrid event at the Milstein Center and on YouTube livestream

With speakers Mona Oraby (Howard) and Kaiama Glover (Barnard)

Cosponsored by Social Science Research Council; Barnard Digital Humanities Center; The Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities; and the Department of Religion

A conversation with Kaiama L. Glover (Barnard College) and Mona Oraby (Howard University). This event is prompted by the publication of Oraby’s coauthored graphic nonfiction book, A Universe of Terms: Religion in Visual Metaphor, which is based on a project she first convened and edited on The Immanent Frame, a digital platform hosted by the Social Science Research Council. Using A Universe of Terms as a point of departure, Glover and Oraby will discuss the boundaries of research, including the expected products of scholarship, as well as the role of the digital humanities in bridging public-facing work with specialist interests. Glover and Oraby, both long-time editors of born-digital projects, will also engage in a conversation about how editorial experiences shape their scholarly praxis.
