2012 in Review: Big ideas in DH (Week 6)

We've come a long way baby.
When: Friday 2 November 2012, 2.30pm-3.30pm
Where: Arts 1.33 / CHE Seminar Room

"Over the last couple of years, it has become increasingly clear that the digital humanities is associated with a visionary and forward-looking sentiment and that the field has come to constitute a site for far-reaching discussions about the future of the field itself as well as the humanities at large." - Patrik Svensson

The theme of the final session was 'Big ideas in Digital Humanities'. Brett Hirsch and Toby Burrows shared insights into the future of digital humanities at UWA and we asked attendees to contribute their own 'big ideas':
  • What opportunities are you most excited about and where do you think they could lead the humanities? 
  • How should digital humanists best contribute to discussions regarding the future of the humanities in Australian universities? 
  • Does the future contain a digital utopia or will humanists face unforeseen challenges?

The reading reflected our theme of 'Big Ideas'.
