Spring 2017 DILAC Events

We are pleased to announce our schedule of events for the Spring 2017 semester. This semester we will be available in the lab each Wednesday from 3-4 p.m. to discuss ideas and answer any DILAC-related questions. One Wednesday each month we'll host a reading group on "Design and the Digital Humanities” as a precursor to our symposium on the same topic in May. Each meeting we'll discuss readings and projects selected from our keynote presenters and other leaders in design and the digital humanities. The dates for each session are below, along with selected readings for the first session.

All are invited! We look forward to seeing you and to a lively conversation.

DH + Design Symposium

The DH + Design Symposium, to be held at Georgia Tech, in Atlanta, on May 4th and 5th, 2017, will bring together leading scholars from the digital humanities and design to explore these increasingly convergent fields, and to identify additional possibilities for their intersection. We will facilitate a series of multi-format conversations around topics of shared concern, including the role of practice (and other applied forms of research) in each field; the similarities and differences between each field’s design processes; theories of speculation as they have been developed through the humanities and design; and how these two fields, together, might rally to address pressing matters of social and political concern.
