DH@CC Spring Symposium

February 18 and 20, 2015 at Rose Hill Theater, Pomona College and the Claremont Colleges Library


  1. DH Spring Symposium Keynote
    Dr. Alan Liu (University of California Santa Barbara), "Key Trends in the Digital Humanities: How Digital Humanities Challenge the Idea of the Humanities," February 18, 2015. Rose Hill Theater, Pomona College.

    How do such key methods in the digital humanities as data mining, mapping, visualization, social network analysis, and topic modeling make an essential difference in the idea of the humanities, and vice versa? Using examples of digital humanities research, Alan Liu speculates on the large questions that confront the humanities in the face of computational media - most importantly, questions about the nature and function of interpretive "meaning."
  2. DH Spring Symposium Plenary:
    Dr. Miriam Posner (University of California, Los Angeles)
    "Framing the Digital Humanities," February 20, 2015. Honnold-Mudd Library, Claremont Colleges

    Digital humanities gets a lot of buzz, but what is it, fundamentally? What can you do with digital humanities tools and methods, and how might it be useful in a liberal arts context? We'll look at some example projects and talk about where DH might be heading in coming years.
