The abstract of the talk is as follows:

In this presentation, I will expound a conceptual framework, informed by Paul Ricœur’s (1992) hermeneutical construction of “narrative identity” and Henry Giroux’s (1993) notion of Border Pedagogy, for rethinking the DH workflow, transnationally, for deconstructing Western DH grand narratives and creating counter-texts. By blending Ricœur’s hermeneutical technique, collaboratively, with digital multimedia storytelling tools and Giroux’s idea of Border Pedagogy, it is posited, will enable the re-contextualization of computational narratives, facilitated by GLAM professionals re-envisioning themselves as “border crossers” to reinforce the extant DH epistemic milieux, sociotechnically. In conclusion, this conceptual edifice is an exercise in participatory praxis, as a counterpoint to the techno-deterministic DH research ecosystem, for enabling intercultural dialogue and envisioning a new sociology of knowledge.
