Digital Humanities Week 2011
26-29 September 2011
The 2011 Digital Humanities Week at the University of Maine explores the impact of digital research and publication tools on artistic creation and humanities scholarship.
Long a workhorse of the empirical sciences, computing has recently begun to transform the study of the human condition. This series of events will touch on databases and cultural heritage, new publication platforms for scholars, and the up- and downsides of the increasing digitization of society.
Schedule of events
The 2011 Digital Humanities Week includes presentations and workshops by photo archivists and Twitter sociologists, guerilla gardeners and best-selling Kindle authors. Click below to view:
Accompanying Digital Humanities Week 2011 is a continuously updating Web site that enables audience members to discuss related topics in advance with presenters and with each other during the events. These remarks will be re-presented by the organizers as additional questions and comments at the end of each presentation.
Please join the discussion!
Twitter aficionados can recount conference events or participate remotely in questions and answers using the hashtag #dhweek.
