Decoding Digital Humanities #5

By Simon Mahony, on 14 July 2010

The next Decoding Digital Humanities meetup will be held on:

Date: Tuesday, 27 July 2010
Time: 5.30pm – 7.30pm
Location: Jeremy Bentham pub, 31 University Street, London, WC1E 6JL (map)

The Digital Humanities 2010 conference was held at King’s College London and brought to a close on 10 July with a plenary speech by Dr Melissa Terras (UCL). Due to the topical and timely nature of issues raised in the speech, we felt it would make an excellent focus for discussion. The assigned reading for our meetup on the 27th will be:

“Present, Not Voting: Digital Humanities in the Panopticon”. Text available here.

The video recording of this closing plenary is now also available on the arts-humanities.net website.

From our dependence on primary sources and modern technology to digital identity, and the impact of the economic downturn, the speech provoked a tremendous response (some of which can be seen at Twitter #dh2010). Come tell us what you think over a pint!

RSVP is appreciated but not required.
