The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences in collaboration with faculty from the Center for Advanced Computing and Data Systems is sponsoring a workshop in the Digital Humanities and Social Sciences. The workshop will explore the scope and variety of projects in the Digital Humanities and Social Sciences. There will be presentations from Dr. Claude Willan, an exciting young scholar and research associate at Princeton University’s Center for Digital Humanities and also from University of Houston faculty and librarians and from the Executive Director for Digital Scholarship Service at the Fondren Library at Rice University.   Distinguished Professor Andrea Prosperetti from the Center for Advanced Computing and Data Systems will speak briefly about resources available at UH for those interested in research in Digital Humanities and Social Sciences. The workshop is open to all faculty and graduate students at the University of Houston.

There will be three sessions and we will provide a lunch. There will be a social hour following the workshop. Please see the attached schedule of the events of the day.

Digital research is an important new area of inquiry. This workshop will show the types of projects informed by digital research and will publicize what resources are available at UH for those interested in pursuing this scholarship.

 

We hope to see you on March 3 in Agnes Arnold 104
