Dartmouth’s Leslie Humanities Center and Neukom Institute for Computational Science invite proposals for participants in a conference Oct. 5-6, 2014, “How the ‘Big Data’ Viewpoint is Reshaping the Humanities.” Digital Humanities (formerly Humanities Computing) is a wide and expanding field that explores where computational methodologies and humanistic inquiry might intersect, and in doing so fundamentally shifts each of these subjects in new directions. Ranging from game development to archiving projects and datamining, the field uses emerging technical and computational resources to provide access to knowledge and reshape its meanings. Increasingly, new approaches designed for the collection, analysis, and visualization of large data sets are becoming relevant for investigations in the humanities. This meeting will focus on these innovative approaches.
Proposals for poster session presentations of 15 minutes on innovative work at the intersection of computation and the humanities are welcome. Selected participants will receive lodging from the organizers and transportation to Dartmouth/Hanover NH. Application deadline: February 15, 2014.
