Join us on Friday, October 23 at 3:00 p.m. in Reynolda 301 for his talk titled “DH Sustainability: How the UNC Digital Innovation Lab Addresses Concerns of Maintenance, Portability and Generality in Digital Humanities Platform Design.” Newton will speak about DH Press within the context of designing a digital humanities tool that builds capacity for DH practice and ties into efforts to foster a DH community on-campus and beyond.
Michael Newton comes to digital humanities work with strong qualifications in both information technology and the humanities. Newton graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a B.A. in Computer Science, which he earned while working at a popular computer game company. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in Celtic Studies at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and has published extensively in that field. In 2007 he was awarded a Digital Humanities Initiative grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a digital collaboratory for Celtic Studies which was hosted for several years by iBiblio.
Our goalThe DH Community is a program of Wake Forest's Humanities Institute. We are faculty from across campus interested in investigating the emergence of digital humanities as a field of study, and its relevance and usefulness as a research and teaching tool in the humanities.
