James Baker (U. Southampton), 'Data Environmentalism: reflections on 'Digital Humanities in the Anthropocene' at ten.'
In her Digital Humanities 2014 keynote Bethany Nowviskie asked "What is the place of digital humanities practice in the new social and geological era of the Anthropocene?". Reflecting on the tenth anniversary of Nowviskie's intervention, this paper will explore the ways in which DH has responded, how it has developed distinctive practices and research agendas that confront our intersecting climate, ecological, and social emergencies. It will posit 'Data Environmentalism' as an ethic for our times, an ethic that honours – and builds on – the ambitions of Nowviskie's 'Digital Humanities in the Anthropocene'.
