Defining Digital Humanities II

This group will examine the current state of Digital Humanities through the eyes of prominent scholars, review exemplary Digital Humanities work and institutional policies, and wrestle with how Digital Humanities is reconfiguring what it is humanities inquiry might be or do. The problem of definition bookends our program: the first session surveys the Digital Humanities landscape, while our final session will come full circle to consider whether Digital Humanities is distinct from normative academic change. The six intervening sessions are divided between reviewing the various ways of "doing" Digital Humanities and institutional responses, and critical discussions of the intellectual and political challenges presented by the digital revolution.
