Digital Scholarship Brown Bag: "Humanities and Data Science at CU Boulder: An Exploratory Conversation"

CRDDS Digital Scholarship Brown Bags are forums for scholars to share how they're exploring computational and multimodal research methods and related pedagogical practices. Please join us for light refreshments (i.e. tea and cookies!) and conversation.

On April 24th, Rachael Deagman Simonetta and David Glimp (English) will present, "Humanities and Data Science at CU Boulder: An Exploratory Conversation."

Abstract: In February 2019, Alan Liu (UC Santa Barbara) visited CU Boulder to discuss how learning digital methods can help students to understand the Humanities better and how such knowledge, in turn, might fruitfully contribute to a world increasingly influenced by Data Science.  This CRDDS informal brown bag, led by David Glimp and Rachael Simonetta in the English Department, engages the question of how such a bi-directional, or even multi-dimensional, movement of thought might look at CU Boulder.  After sharing the accomplishments and challenges of their experimental Computational Literary Analysis course, Glimp and Simonetta will lead a conversation about how a partnership focused on Data Science across disciplines might unfold and what we, as a cross-disciplinary community, would need to make such a vision practicable.
