January 26 - January 27
The UF Social Justice Summit is being held Jan. 26-27, with many great panels and program activities. The conference program information is on the website. Among the many fantastic presentations and sessions, at least two are directly related for the Digital Humanities and/as Public Humanities in that they build and build from related digital collections to create new scholarly and public works for impact and action in the world:
— a collective multi-media theatrical experience–
A compelling play that compiles oral history narratives from the Women’s March on Washington as well the experiences of the students who documented those voices.
Written by: UF students and staff in the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program
Directed by: Jeffrey Pufahl
Voices from the March is directed by Creative Campus SPOHP Scholar in Residence Jeffrey Pufahl whose work at the UF is focused on developing theatre-based programming that addresses social issues and community health.
- Our presentation will explain the politics of identity within the LGBTQ+ community, which has historically marginalized members within its own community. We will utilize our research from Pride weekend in Washington, D.C. as a springboard to critique the LGBTQ+ movement and propose how allyship can be enhanced within the community. This presentation will take a critical, intersectional approach to demonstrating how there is much room for improvement around LGBTQ+ organizing. Those attending will be able to critique the movement by analyzing interview excerpts and applying these insights to the discussion.
