A Discussion of New Paths in the Digital Humanities

December 12, 2012

These discussions are designed to encourage dialogue among BC faculty and staff about instructional technologies that have broad impact for teaching and learning, both at BC and beyond.

This session is now full. Please send us an email if you are interested in being placed on a wait list.


Today's discussion is meant to help us explore what we mean by "the digital humanities."  Prior to meeting, we'll read a short article that outlines the ways the definition can differ, and then we'll respond to it by discussing experiences from our own teaching and scholarship here at BC. We'll also share what we think are the most exciting new directions in the digital humanities, venturing some predictions about how the relationship between "the digital" and "the humanities" will change in the years to come.

Discussion Material

Reading: The Ouroboros; or, How “Digital” and “Humanities” Will Shape Each Other in the Near Future (single page in Educause Review, September/October 2011).
