    Hello DARC Community,

    Just wanted to share this interesting event on Digital Archiving and Care being organized by the Bard Graduate Center.

    Anna Arabindan-Kesson will present at the Digital Humanities/Exhibitions Seminar on Thursday, October 7, at 12:15 pm. Her talk is entitled “Art Hx: Digital Archiving and Forms of Care.” REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE.

    This talk focuses on the ways digital tools can be used to create alternative spaces of archival organization, exploration, and interpretation. It centers on the project Art Hx: Visual and Medical Legacies of British Colonialism, and the tensions and opportunities it raises for reimagining practices of interpretation and care in our engagement with colonial objects, archives, and histories.

    Anna Arabindan-Kesson is an immigrant art historian, writer, and curator. She trained and worked as a registered nurse before transitioning to a career in the humanities and completing her PhD in African American studies and art history at Yale University. At Princeton University, she is assistant professor of Black diasporic art with a joint appointment in the Departments of African American Studies and Art and Archaeology. In her research and teaching, she focuses on Black diaspora and British art, with an emphasis on histories of race, empire, and medicine. Arabindan-Kesson’s first book, Black Bodies, White Gold: Art Cotton and Commerce in the Atlantic World, was published by Duke University Press in May 2021. She is currently a visiting fellow at Columbia University’s Center for the Study of Social Difference and a 2021 Center for Digital Humanities Data Fellow at Princeton University. She has worked on several curatorial projects and currently serves as an advisory council member for the Jamaican artist-run initiative NLS Kingston and 12 Gates Arts. Additionally, she serves on the board of trustees for the contemporary photography organization Philadelphia Photo Arts Center.
