GW Digital Humanities Symposium:

Time: 9am – 4pm (with coffee breaks, followed by reception)
Venue: Jack Morton Auditorium (805 – 21st Street NW, First Floor)

This symposium explores critical approaches to the digital humanities (DH). What happens when academics, activists, and publishers join forces to rethink how we research, teach, and generate knowledge?  How can digital humanists mobilize online media and social networks to radically transform the spaces of the ARCHIVE, the CLASSROOM, and the IVORY TOWER?

Eileen Joy (Director, punctum books)
Dorothy Kim (medievalist, feminist, digital humanist)
Roopika Risam (Co-founder, Postcolonial Digital Humanities)
Jesse Stommel (Director, Hybrid Pedagogy)
Suey Park (Co-founder, Killjoy Prophets)

Sponsored by the GW Digital Humanities Institute, in collaboration with the Department of English, Creative Writing, Department of History, Dean’s Scholars in Shakespeare Program, Disability Support Services, GW Libraries, GW Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute, and the DH Graduate Working Group

    Thank you for sharing notice of this important event. Unfortunately, I will be en route California that day. Are there any plans for a pod-cast, archival video, or published online summary of the presentations?
    Thanks for any further info.

      Prof. McJannet: Yes, we are thinking ahead about making information available in a variety of ways. We do hope to make at least some podcasts, and we will generate (at the very minimum) an online summary of the proceedings afterwards. We will also encourage audience members to live-tweet the proceedings using the #GWDH15 and #DisDH hashtags and will produce a curated twitter archive. In addition, many of the participants at this event are also involved in the forthcoming “Disrupting the Digital Humanities” collection, ed. by Dorothy Kim and Jesse Stommel (punctum books) — so some of these conversations will live on in that form as well!
