As the global pandemic continues, conversations related to mental health have become increasingly common. The sudden and drastic changes to our social connections, the nature and locations of our work, and even the quality and quantity of our home lives have each made demands on us that many of us were unprepared to handle. The humanist work of teaching has earned greater attention as it has taken on greater importance. What might care work look like from a more global, more pedagogical perspective?
In this episode, I talk with the Pedagogy of the Digitally Oppressed Collective, which fosters queer, feminist, and anti-colonial approaches to digital humanities teaching. The collective consists of Ashley Caranto Morford, Arun Jacob, and Kush Patel, representing the fields of English, Indigenous, and Filipinx/a/o studies; Information Studies; and Architectural History-Theory and Design Studies. They lead workshops, deliver talks, author texts, and teach courses within coalitions in and across the Global North and Global South that challenge the overlapping injustices of historically white, upper caste, and heteropatriarchal orders, while illuminating the specifics of those injustices and education-centered counternarratives in a given place.
