DH + Design Symposium

The DH + Design symposium, to be held at Georgia Tech, in Atlanta, on May 4th and 5th, 2017, will bring together leading scholars from the digital humanities and design to explore these increasingly convergent fields, and to identify additional possibilities for their intersection. We will facilitate a series of multi-format conversations around topics of shared concern, including the role of practice (and other applied forms of research) in each field; the similarities and differences between each field’s design processes; theories of speculation as they have been developed through the humanities and design; and how these two fields, together, might rally to address pressing matters of social and political concern.

We are seeking to assemble a diverse group of symposium participants that spans a range of scholarly fields, institutional settings, and career levels. To apply to attend, or for more information, click here.
