DH Reading Group
The Digital Humanities Reading Group (DHRG) first convened in the Fall of 2018 to read and discuss articles, blogs, and books that address the emerging field of DH from various theoretical, practical, and pedagogical perspectives. Our objective is to supplement our understanding of digital humanities by developing an appreciation of the variety of approaches that are encompassed by this broad set of methods. The readings are chosen by group members, so the topics are determined by the various interests that we all bring to the table. Our goal this year is to select readings that complement the themes illuminated by the other sessions of the Research Studio Series.
This semester, the Digital Humanities Reading Group will be tackling Martin Hagglund’s This Life: Secular Faith and Spiritual Freedom in advance of Martin’s visit to Claremont in early March. For more information, please contact Aaron Hodges.
