Digital Humanities (DH) is a vibrant field that uses digital technologies to study the interactions between cultural artifacts and society. In our second decade of the twenty-first century, we face a number of questions about the values, methods, and goals of humanistic inquiries at the intersection of digital media and theory.
Topics addressed in the Inaugural GW Digital Humanities Symposium (initiated by GW Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute and Dean’s Scholars in Shakespeare Program) include:
This event was co-organized by Prof. Alexa Alice Joubin, Prof. Jonathan Hsy, Prof. Daniel DeWispelare, and Prof. Patricia Chu, with significant assistance from Emily Russell and GW English. The event was co-sponsored by the Columbian College of Arts & Sciences, Dean’s Scholars in Shakespeare Program, GW Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute, School of Engineering & Applied Science, English, Disability Support Services, Computer Sciences, University Libraries, University Honors Program, University Writing Program, Writing in the Disciplines, Women’s Leadership Program, Theatre & Dance, East Asian Languages & Literatures, and the GW Language Center.
