DDH#4 (previous meeting) Thursday 25 November, 530PM -730PM
This week we will discuss the article by Patricia Cohen in the NY Times on the Digital Humanities ‘Digital Keys for Unlocking the Humanities’ Riches Also, perhaps a broad question that we could address ‘is the humanities moving towards a post-theoretical age’ as posed by Tom Scheinfeldt’s from CHNM in the article (or perhaps DH in under-theorised).

DDH #1 (previous meeting)
To kick off this semester, it is suggested that we engage with the same material as our colleagues at UCL. Melissa Terras from UCL gave the closing plenary at the recent Digital Humanities conference in London which is online as text and video and would be a good point to start the informal discussions. This is from UCL’s Centre for Digital Humanities web site.
The annual Digital Humanities 2010 conference held this year at King’s College London was brought to a close on 10 July with a plenary speech by Dr Melissa Terras (UCL). Due to the topical and timely nature of issues raised in the speech, we felt it would make an excellent focus for discussion. The assigned reading for our meetup on the 27th will be:
Have a look at the video and text and come along and discuss at the pub. If you have any suggestions for articles, software, funding opportunities any ‘digital humanities’ ideas drop us a line and we will put it on the agenda. The meeting is organised by Craig Bellamy and Conal Tuohy of VeRSI. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
