UWA Humanities/Computer Science "Meet and Greet" - 11am, Friday 17 May.

When: Friday 17th May 2013, 11:00am – 12:00pm
Where: Computer Science & Software Engineering, Seminar Room 1.24
Light lunch provided. RSVP essential.

UWA historian Ethan Blue and CSSE researchers Rachel Cordell-Oliver and Yvette Harrap are leading an initiative to bring together academics from humanities/computer science to discuss possible collaborations...

"Like a handful of people in the Arts Faculty, I have been looking into the possibilities of work in the digital humanities. Yet because I lack the required computer science and programming skills, I contacted some of the good folks across campus in Computer Science and Software Engineering to gauge their interest in potential collaboration.  As it turns out, a number of the folks over there are interested in joining forces, too.

With that in mind, and with CSSE's Professor Rachel Cordell-Oliver and Yvette Harrap, we’ve arranged an informal “meet and greet” for people from Arts and from Computer Science at 11:00 AM, 17 May, in Computer Science and Software Engineering Seminar Room 1.24.

If you are interested in digital humanities and have a project in mind, please come along.  We’ll go around the table to introduce ourselves and briefly explain our projects, in hopes of finding others with related interests and complementary skills.  We will have lunch afterwards to continue the conversation, courtesy of our colleagues in computer science."

Researchers are invited to give a short (5 minute) overview of their research interests related to digital humanities. 

RSVP to Yvette Harrap at by Tuesday May 14th.
