Mission:

The Mission of the Latin American and Latino Digital Humanities / Cyberculture (LAT-DH/C) is to establish a internal and external collaborative group at LACSI-UGA, dedicated to exploring, analyzing, and sharing the cultural, literary, visual, and linguistic modalities of electronic / digital textual production in Latin American countries (and by Latino/a artists, writers, and critics) through seminars, symposia, courses, exhibitions, and workshops for anyone interested in the Digital turn that the Humanities have taken already. Given the changing social praxis in our current digital and digitized age, there is a strong need for further study of the ways technological innovations shape and are shaped by cultural practices—in particular in light of critical paradigms that describe the marginal or belated nature of modernity and/as technological advancement in Latin America / US Latino culture.
