We are thrilled to announce that Mina Loy: Navigating the Avant-Garde has been awarded two prestigious scholarly prizes:
- The Garfinkel Prize for Digital Humanities, Honorable Mention, from the American Studies Association (2020)
- The Modern Language Association Prize for Collaborative, Bibliographic, or Archival Scholarship (2022)
The Garfinkel Prize honors DH projects that:
- model ethical and equitable collaborations that responsibly reflect on the politics of collaborative research in the digital humanities;
- participate in transparent and open scholarly practices;
- center research topics that “promote the development of interdisciplinary research on U.S. culture and history in a global context” (following ASA’s stated purpose);
- address these topics through anti-racist, feminist, community-led, or activist modes and methods.
The 2021 Honorable Mention puts our project in the distinguished company of the Taller Electric Marronage and Life x Code: DH Against Enclosure, Genoa Indian School Digital Reconciliation Project, and Mapping the Gay Guides.
We are also honored to share the MLA Prize with Catherine D’Ignazio, associate professor of urban science and planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Lauren F. Klein, Winship Distinguished Research Professor of English and Quantitative Methods at Emory University, who received the award for their book Data Feminism (MIT Press).
