On November 1–3, the Humanities Department will host the Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science.
The goal of the annual Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS) is to bring together researchers and scholars in the humanities and computer science to examine the current state of digital humanities as a field of intellectual inquiry and to identify and explore new directions and perspectives for future research. The first DHCS Colloquium in 2006 (at the University of Chicago) examined the challenges and opportunities posed by the “million books” digitization projects. The second DHCS Colloquium in 2007 (at Northwestern University) focused on searching and querying as both tools and methodologies.
The theme of the third Chicago DHCS Colloquium is “Making Sense” – an exploration of how meaning is created and apprehended at the transition of the digital to the analog.
