How are digital technologies changing the ways scholars in the humanities conduct and publish research? What does digital scholarship in the humanities look like, and what should it do?
Lindsay Thomas (Ph.D. Candidate, UC-Santa Barbara) will explore these issues in a presentation entitled, “What the (Digital) Humanities Do: Interdisciplinary Forms of Digital Scholarship,” on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 4 p.m. in JFT 1010.
Thomas will examine both digital projects and projects about digital technologies, covering a range of topics including database design, data visualization and national security. At stake is the value and authority of humanistic knowledge in today’s digital world.
