The Digital Crucible: Arts & Humanities & Computation - Day 1

Emerging technical and computational resources are now being used to provide access to knowledge and reshape its meanings. Keynote Speaker: David Krakauer

Monday, October 6, 2014
4:30pm-5:30pm
Haldeman 41 (Kreindler Conference Hall)
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Conferences, Lectures & Seminars

Emerging technical and computational resources are now being used to provide access to knowledge and reshape its meanings. Increasingly, new approaches designed for the collection, analysis, and visualization of large data sets are becoming relevant for investigations in the arts and humanities. Examples include game development, archiving, and datamining. These new interactions are continually creating new possibilities for collaboration, conversation, and thought and are shifting, if not transforming many disciplines in the Arts & Humanities and Computational Sciences. The conference will showcase different approaches, ranging across established disciplines (possibly including literature, music, art history, etc.) to new archives and endeavors, as well as provide a venue for a discussion of the implications and possibilities of this kind of work.

 

4:30 P.M. - 5:30 P.M.

Keynote Speaker: David Krakauer, Univ. of Wisconsin: "The Art of Memory: From Chromosomes to Chronotopes"
