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.
The CDH will host over twenty events - invited speakers, symposia, workshops, discussions - 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?
Our programming kicks off with our Open House on September 24. See our Events page for event details. 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.
Many of our Year of Data events are co-organized with campus partners, who include the Princeton University Library, the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, the Graduate School, the Departments of Computer Science, History, English, and Comparative Literature, the East Asian Studies Program, Research Computing, the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning, the Council on Science and Technology, Career Services, and the the Office of the General Council.
