Hosted by UMASS Boston

Digital humanities technologies are transforming the way in which humanists and social scientists do their work. They enable the analysis of texts to reveal patterns, the display of complex histories through interactive maps, the creation of 3D models to aid in the recreation of historical sites and artifacts, and much more.

Are you interested in learning how educational organizations are leveraging digital humanities tools and processes? At the 2017 NMC Summer Conference (#NMC17) in Boston on June 13-15, the New Media Consortium is hosting 20 different presentations under the Digital Humanities session pathway. Through this curated conference track, discover how your institution can incorporate the most up to date tools and processes to enable deeper understanding and help academics and non-academics understand complex data to further research efforts!

This event is *the* global edtech forum for Higher Ed, museums, schools, and libraries. Digital humanities-themed sessions include:

  • The preconference workshop Lights, Camera, Change: Leading Academic Innovation through Storytelling by Kyle Dickson from Abilene Christian University
  • Eight conference breakout sessions, such as  Programming Art and Literature by Nick Montfort of MIT and Electronic Literature Organization and Supporting Digital Humanities: Does Your Institution Have Capacity? by Joan Lippincott of the Coalition for Networked Information.
