On April 8th, the Berkeley Digital Humanities (DH) community gathered at Social Science Matrix for a poster section, the culminating event of a special two-day Berkeley DH Faire 2015.
Digital Humanities at Berkeley supports the thoughtful application of digital tools and methodologies to humanistic inquiry by offering project consulting, summer workshops, grants for collaborative research and new courses, and other activities at UC Berkeley.
Over the past few years, the digital humanities community at Berkeley has grown exponentially across disciplines. This event was organized by the Digital Humanities working group to connect established digital humanities scholars, interested graduate students, the libraries, and support staff in discussions about methods, resources, and current projects.
The poster session featured conversation regarding the landscape and opportunities of digital humanities at UC Berkeley.
In addition to the poster presentation showcasing current digital humanities projects, the event included a keynote address by Professor Zephyr Frank, Department of History, Spatial History Project at Stanford University; as well as a panel discussion on “Landscape of Berkeley DH,” with Elizabeth Honig, Laurie Pearce, Francesco Spagnolo, and moderated by Cathryn Carson.
This event was co-sponsored by Computing and the Practice of History, the History Department, Digital Humanities at Berkeley (a collaboration between Research IT and the Dean of Arts and Humanities), Digital Humanities Fellows, the D-Lab, the Townsend Center for the Humanities, and the Library.
