Losh discusses the prospects for an engaged digital humanities. She encourages the consideration of the relationship of the academy and politics by thinking about the "nonviolent use of digital tools in pursuit of political ends":

"In the context of the digital humanities, hacktivism theory offers a way to broaden and deepen our understanding of the use of digital tools and of the politics of that tool use and to question the uncritical instrumentalism that so many digital humanities projects propound."

How do we want to see DH scholarship related to hactivism? What opportunities, obligations might there be? Are examples like D.O.S. attacks or Radical Software Group's "Carnivore" art/surveillance project suggestive? Critical Art Ensemble "virtual sit ins"?
(How do we think about these issues in our teaching, classrooms, and research)?
