Upcoming UF Events in the Digital Humanities UGA THAT CampSE 10 11 March, 2012 (Saturday Sunday) in Athens, Georgia http://southeast2012.thatcamp.org/ Virtual Presentation by Brett Bobley, Director, NEH Office of the Digital Humanities (ODH) 19 March, Smathers Library 1A, 4:00 5:00pm Humanities (ODH), who will speak about the development of the ODH, its current funding programs, and future traj ectories. To Advance the Common Understanding: Reinventing the Humanities in a Digital Age 5 April, 7:30 pm, Smathers 1A Gregory Crane (Tufts University; Editor in Chief, Perseus Project) Rehumanizing the University : New Perspectives on the Liberal Arts The rise of vast digitized collections and increasingly sophisticated analytical methods has begun to transform both the depth and potential scale of humanities research. New media are, however, far more important because they have the potential to chang e the "who" and not simply the "what" of humanities discourse. We have an opportunity to redefine the relationship between what happens in the academy and society as a whole, but the degree to which we pursue that opportunity depends upon serious decisions that we will make, whether explicitly or by default. This talk will explore both the challenges and opportunities as Humanists explore their ability to realize their highest goal, advancing the intellectual life of society as a whole. First annual Digita l Humanities Day @ UF 26 April, 1 4pm, Smathers 1A Faculty and graduate students will present lightning talks on their digital projects, research and pedagogical methods, and related topics in the disciplines. Followed by topical roundtables with colleagues from information technology (databases, simulation, spatial tools, etc.). If you would like to present, p lease email by April 1 st to Sophia Acord ( skacord@ufl.edu ) Site Visits to Digital Humanities resource s @ UF 27 April, 12:30 4:30pm, details TBA Faculty and graduate students in the humanities are invited on a tour of UF resources for the digital humanities, including the Geographic Information Systems Library, Digital Library Center, Art+Architecture Fab Lab High Performance Computing C enter, and Digital Worlds Institute.
