I would like to propose a grab bag session that would take us off-site and into the streets of New York City to cultivate compassion in the digital humanities. This session would be offered in the 4:45 time slot at the end of the day to allow sufficient time for traveling and researching off-site. If there is sufficient interest, we may choose to collaborate on a blog or other digital publication with the data that we collect.
Join this session for an off-site walking tour of New York City, with special attention to places and spaces linked to Occupy Wall Street. Working with contemplative pedagogy for the digital humanities, we will visit and digitally record our responses on this walking tour. By mindfully mapping our embodied connections to living history, we may begin to imagine a means of cultivating compassionate in our teaching and scholarship in the digital humanities.
