Digital Tools for the Humanities: What’s Being Developed? What is Needed?

This fall’s Washington DC Area Forum on Technology and the Humanities focuses on “Digital Tools for the Humanities: What’s Being Developed? What is Needed?”

Our panelists are David Greenbaum and Raymond Yee from the University of California Berkeley’s Interactive University Project, Susan Schreibman and Amit Kumar from the University of Maryland’s Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) and Dan Cohen from George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media (CHNM). All of the panelists have developed interesting new tools for scholars and students in the humanities, which they will demonstrate.
