One week away: DISRUPTING DH (Friday, January 30)
GW Digital Humanities Symposium 2015: DISRUPTING DH
Date: Friday, January 30, 2015 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?

Dorothy Kim (medievalist, feminist, digital humanist)
Roopika Risam (Co-founder, Postcolonial Digital Humanities)

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