Digital Tools for the Humanities: What’s Being Developed? What is Needed?

This fall’s Washington DC Area Forum on Technology and the Humanities focuses on “Digital Tools for the Humanities: What’s Being Developed? What is Needed?”

Our panelists are David Greenbaum and Raymond Yee from the University of California Berkeley’s Interactive University Project, Susan Schreibman and Amit Kumar from the University of Maryland’s Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) and Dan Cohen from George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media (CHNM). All of the panelists have developed interesting new tools for scholars and students in the humanities, which they will demonstrate.

We will meet on Wednesday, October 27th from 4:00-6:00 PM at GMU’s Student Union Building II, rooms 5 & 6. There will be an informal dinner (Thai food) after the forum, at a cost of $10 per person. You must RSVP online for dinner by 22 October at http://chnm.gmu.edu/tools/surveys/form/395.

Co-sponsored by the Center for History & New Media (CHNM) at GMU and the Center for New Designs in Learning & Scholarship (CNDLS) at Georgetown, the DC Area Technology and Humanities Forum explores important issues in humanities computing and provide an opportunity for DC area scholars interested the uses of new technology in the humanities to meet and get acquainted.
