Digital Humanities Speaker Series

Digital Humanities Speaker Series

Created in Spring 2012, the Digital Humanities Speaker Series brings in teacher/scholars working in Digital Humanities and new media. At its core, Digital Humanities is interdisciplinary, uniting scholars from literature, rhetoric & composition, history, geography, linguistics and more with scholars from computer science, information science. In addition, archivists and curators in museums, libraries, special collections, and professional societies can be found working on DH projects.

Our goal for the series is to invite scholars who can speak to growing trends and concerns in the Digital Humanities, linking our TCU community with the field at large.
