Abstracts and Speakers
Welcome to George Washington University's inaugural Digital Humanities Symposium, January 24-26, 2013. The event is free and open to the public, but you are encouraged to register online.
The presentations are designed with a broad audience in mind and address multiple disciplines that range from computer science and media studies to gender and race studies, digital pedagogy, and literary studies.
Digital humanities is a vibrant field that uses digital technologies to study the interactions between cultural artifacts and the society. In our second decade of the twenty-first century, we face a number of questions about the values, methods, and goals of humanistic inquiries at the intersection of digital media and theory.
