Sawyer Seminar: "D[igital] H[umanities] by Design" by Tara McPherson
Thursday, December 3, 2015
Speaker: Tara McPherson, University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, Founding Editor of Vectors.
Many view the Digital Humanities (DH) as a scientific and quantitative endeavor, intent on blending computer science and humanities traditions. What if we instead imagined the origin story for DH to emerge from the intersection of the arts and the interpretative humanities? This talk will mine that alternative lineage and explore a series of digital projects that take their inspiration not from the sciences but from feminism, experimental aesthetics and social justice movements.
