Histories of Digital Labor (Guaranteed panel, MLA 2017, 5-8 January, Philadelphia, PA)

Thursday, January 28, 2016 - 1:36pm
Shawna Ross / MLA Committee on Information Technology

The MLA Committee on Information Technology invites abstracts on the history of digital labor for a guaranteed panel at the MLA conference in Philadelphia from January 5-8, 2017.

As labor-intensive projects continue to dominate the funding landscape of the digital humanities, scholars are beginning to ask important questions about the labor involved in such project. Who is doing this work? What are the working conditions? How are these labors credited or erased? By recovering stories and contributions by forgotten laborers—by insisting that students receive some compensation and that overseas transcription farms are recognized for what they are—digital humanists are beginning to attend to important questions of social justice.
