Arts, Media and Culture Colloquium, on 20 February

AMC Colloquium ‘Digital Humanities-Designing for New Audiences, Methods & Approaches’

Speakers: Susan Schreibman & Costas Papadopoulos

When: Wednesday 20 February, 15.30 – 17.00
Where: Spiegelzaal GG80-82

This joint presentation will explore Papadopoulos’s and Schreibman’s research, both jointly and separately. Coming from two different backgrounds, Digital Archaeology and Heritage and Irish Literary Studies and Scholarly Editing (respectively), this talk will focus on points of intersection and collaboration that have resulted in novel project design and execution. These include participatory design and community engagement, design thinking, and new forms of scholarship and teaching in projects such as Letters 1916-1923, History in a Box, Design Thinking and Making in the Arts and Sciences, Digital Sensoriality, and Simulations of Light in Ancient Built Spaces.

There will also be an opportunity during the presentation for colleagues to explore how their research, as well as AMC research objectives, might align or complement those presented.
