Fall 2013 LAS Dean's Lecture: “What are the Digital Humanities?”

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Music Center 1014 S. Michigan, Chicago, IL, 60605

As the work of students and scholars in the liberal arts continues to moves toward digital platforms, how are their ways of writing, reviewing, communicating, and conducting research changing? What might students and scholars in a variety of fields learn from those changes? How might more digitally enabled humanities engage with people who live and work outside of colleges and universities?  

For the Fall 2013 LAS Dean’s Lecture, Dean Deborah H. Holdstein is pleased to welcome noted scholar, professor, and Director of Scholarly Communication at the Modern Language Association Dr. Kathleen Fitzpatrick, who will speak about the extraordinary opportunities—as well as a few challenges—in the digital humanities.

A Q&A will follow Dr. Fitzpatrick’s lecture, followed by a reception with food, music, and refreshments. This event is sponsored by the Office of the Dean, School of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
