The Future of DH at Drew

Please join us on Saturday, September 10, 9:00-5:00, Ehinger Center for the culminating symposium of the Mellon Digital Humanities Grant, “The Future of DH at Drew.”  The symposium will be a day-long conversation in which we reflect on what we have done over the past four years and think about the future of the Digital Humanities at Drew.  Our hope is that this will be a wide-ranging conversation about the nature and place of the digital humanities in the curriculum, but also about the humanities and the digital more broadly.  In the morning faculty, students and alums will present about the work they have done over the past four years.  In the afternoon, panelists from three other liberal arts colleges will discuss the ways that their colleges have institutionalized the digital humanities after a Mellon grant.  The afternoon will conclude with brainstorming conversations about future possibilities for Digital Humanities at Drew led by the three panelists and members of the DH Advisory Committee. The conference is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation with support the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences.
