From Jon Svensson
Roopika Risam, Chair of Secondary and Higher Education and Associate Professor of Education and English, Salem State University
Risams research interests lie at the intersections of postcolonial and African diaspora studies, humanities knowledge infrastructures, and digital humanities.
Her monograph, New Digital Worlds: Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Theory, Praxis, and Pedagogy, is one example of her academic endeavor to question and reposition the digital humanities.
Among her latest publications, we find the co-edited collection The Digital Black Atlantic in the Debates in the Digital Humanities series.
