Critical Making

Spring 2023 Price Lab for Digital Humanities

workshop teaching

In the introduction to Making Things and Drawing Boundaries, Jentery Sayers defines conceptual matter: 'the inability to unmoor materials from how we interpret materials.' Making - from both a practical and theoretical perspective - increasingly undergirds the digital humanities, from the technological stacks that support digital exhibits to fully embroidered computers. In this workshop, we not only discussed, but also touched, tinkered, drew, and stitched our way to a collective understanding of conceptual matters: where making in the digital humanities currently is, and where we might want it to take us.
