Interface 2013: Creative and Critical Approaches in the Digital Humanities
May 3, 2013 — May 5, 2013
|Location:||2017 Dunton Tower|
The digital humanities explores how emerging digital forms of scholarly inquiry and new ways to assess and to organize knowledge transform the creative and critical methods humanities scholars use to approach their objects of study. Thoughtful in play, interdisciplinary in engagement, utopian in spirit, and transformational in intent, digital humanists “imagine new couplings and scalings that are facilitated both by new models of research practice and by the availability of new tools and technologies” (The Digital Humanities Manifesto 2.0).
The goal of this conference is to highlight the variety of digital approaches, both creative and critical, praxis and theory-based, that scholars are bringing to bear on traditional concerns across the humanities. In addition to traditional conference presentations, organizers are planning a number of workshops on game development and digital tool exploration.
