Zine Librarian Jenna Freedman Zine Librarian Jenna Freedman will be presenting at NYC Digital Humanities Week (February 4-8)!  Jenna will be part of  “Information, Democracy, Archives, and Absence,” a panel which offers a historical perspective for the NYCDH theme of Information and Democracy. As digitization makes archives more accessible, and as digital humanities methods provide new ways of interrogating the relationship between knowledge and power, we ask how scholars are shedding light on the social and political challenges of our present and the lost voices of our past. Panelists will build on recent discussions of what Thomas Padilla has called “engaging absence” in the archive, to demonstrate how DH enables us to contemplate what we know and how we know it, and to democratize the production of knowledge. Congrats, Jenna!
