103rd Annual Meeting
May 2-4, 2013, San Francisco Hilton Hotel, Financial District
Digital methods in the Liberal Arts have shifted from being a sideshow to a central act in the scholarly engagement with human culture. Though humanists and social scientists have used computation in their work for many decades, the amount of both digitized data and degree of algorithmic sophistication makes the present moment a crucial one for bringing together expertise and exchange of ideas in this area. Since our field studies nations with high levels of technical development and strong investments in large-scale digital cultural heritage projects, we face a special challenge in ensuring our methodologies are sophisticated enough to tackle a coming flood of Nordic ‘big data.’
