Digital Scholarship Studio and Network: UB DH Minor Roundtable, “The Future of Digital Literacy in the Humanities” [ONLINE ONLY]

March 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Where does the humanities intersect with computing, and how will it do so in the future? This roundtable consisting of faculty and students will explore the development of UB’s Digital Humanities program, currently offered as a minor available to undergraduates throughout the university. Focusing on the hands-on application of technologies such as artificial intelligence and data analysis to prepare students for careers combining critical thinking with technical familiarity, this dialogue between panelists and audience members will consider ways to expand the program. How, for example. might it grow to meet student interest in project-based teamwork, experiential learning, and career skills? Is it feasible to consider a Major in addition to a Minor? And should it remain a “Digital Humanities” program or be called something else, like “Digital Literacy,” taking into account the fractious online landscape of the present day? Come discover what faculty have been doing in this area, and share your thoughts on how it might develop going forward! Student are encouraged to attend!
