About the Conference

Join us for a rousing discussion of democracy and the digital at the fourth Digital Scholarship Colloquium hosted by Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. The Digital and Democracy will interrogate the ways that digital tools work to either uphold or upend democracy, and how research might be used to advocate for positive impact within communities experiencing disruption and inequality. The colloquium is an opportunity to connect people to the scholarly work and digital tools that directly or indirectly affects their lives and civil liberties.
