The Center for Digital Humanities is excited to launch Year of Data, a campus-wide initiative that will take place during the 2018-2019 academic year. We will host and co-host over twenty events to encourage critical thinking about how data shapes our research, teaching, and daily lives. Together we’ll address questions such as:
- How do we conceive of the human record as data?
- What analytical, methodological, and technological practices do we bring to bear on questions of data in the humanities?
- How can humanistic approaches transform data science?
Join us for a celebratory kick-off at our Open House, on September 24, 4:30-6pm at the CDH on B Floor of Firestone Library. Be sure to join us for our keynote address by Dr. Safiya Noble, author of Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, on December 6. See our Events page for more information.
