1. Digital Humanities, Digital Cultures: Local and National Futures
Room G21/22, Devonshire Building
Monday 11 June 2018, 15.00-17.30
Refreshments available from 14:45
Digital Humanities is now a mature discipline, but its methods and parameters, the various forms it can take, and even its nomenclature, are still fluid, and up for debate.
This event brings to Newcastle Jane Winters, Professor of Digital Humanities at the School of Advanced Study London, an expert in the analysis of Big Data in humanities,
especially historical, research. She will present her view of the current Digital Humanities landscape in the UK, and her proposal for a new national Digital Humanities scholarly society.
In return, we will be talking about how we at Newcastle ‘do digital’ in our humanities, arts and social science teaching and research.
Jane Winters – Professor of Digital Humanities, School of Advanced Studies, University of London
Richard Clay – Professor of Digital Cultures, Newcastle University
Wen Lin – Lecturer in Human Geography
James Cummings – Senior Lecturer in English and Digital Humanities
