2012 in Review: Demystifying DH (Week 1)

When: Tuesday 18 September, 1pm – 1.45pm
Where: Arts 1.33 / CHE Seminar Room

We hosted a short lunchtime Q&A session, discussing how the field of Digital Humanities is defined, why it’s growing so rapidly, how it offers new opportunities to organise, analyse and communicate research - and why you don’t need to be a computer programmer to take part in it.

James Smith delivered a lively 20-minute presentation, which was followed by a Q&A session where attendees could voice questions, concerns and ideas for future sessions.

Suggested reading:
Charles Ess argues that the use of computing technologies in the humanities isn't so new after all.
