Black Code (co-edited by @jmjafrx and @NewBlackMan)

Delighted to share the latest special issue of the Black Scholar on the convergence of black studies and the digital humanities known as Black Code Studies–co-edited by Mark Anthony Neal and yours truly!

See below:

The Black Scholar is proud to announce the release of “Black Code,” a special issue of the Black Scholar. The guest editors, Jessica Marie Johnson and Mark Anthony Neal, have assembled a collective of digital soothsayers working on the margins of Black Studies, Afrofuturism, radical media, and the digital humanities. Black Code Studies is queer, femme, fugitive, and radical; as praxis and methodology, it waxes insurgent when the need arises. And in this moment, we are in need of Black digital insurgency, one attuned to racial scripts of the past even as it looks to future modes of Black thought and cultural production for inspiration. Barely scratching the surface, this issue welcomes new work and celebrates a Black digital fugitivity that has been present since the beginning of the internet. Our contributors include Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Lauren Cramer, Alessandra Raengo, Tara L. Conley, Ashleigh Wade, Aleia Brown, Joshua Crutchfield, Megan Driscoll, Ahmad Greene-Hayes, and Joy James, with an introduction from Jessica Marie Johnson and Mark Anthony Neal, and cover art from John Jennings celebrating Octavia Butler’s iconic novel Wild Seed.
