Remembering: Angel David Nieves

Written by: Steve Brier

It is with great sadness that the members of the Advisory Board and the staff of the RRCHNM note the sudden passing on December 5th of our colleague and RRCHNM board member, Ángel David Nieves. A distinguished and pioneering scholar in the digital humanities and the development of experimental online publishing platforms, Ángel was Dean’s Professor of Public and Digital Humanities, Professor of African American Studies and History, and Director of Public Humanities at Northeastern University. His scholarship focused on the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, social justice, and technology in the United States and South Africa. He brought to that work a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches and comradely enthusiasm for collaboration. His presence will be sorely missed in all of the sites and places that he supported and improved, including RRCHNM.
