Re:Humanities ’13 is less than a week away!

Re:Humanities ’13 showcases the work of undergraduate scholars from 11 colleges and universities nationwide. This year’s symposium features a wide range of presentations that reimagine ‘narrative’ across multiple new platforms: interdisciplinary approaches to gaming, transmedia storytelling, infographics and infomatics, cultural criticism through the lens of new media, digital forms of argumentation, visual modes of record and witness, and oral and auditory experimentation.

Two distinguished members of the field will also be speaking. On Thursday, April 4, Professor Tara McPherson, Chair of the Critical Studies Department at USC’s School of Cinema Arts and the founding editor of multimedia journal VECTORS will open the symposium with a keynote address entitled “A Feminist in a Software Lab.”

On Friday, April 5, Professor Angel David Nieves, Chair of the Africana Studies Department at Hamilton and Co-Director of the Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi) at Hamilton College, will give the lecture “Undergraduate Research in the Spatial Humanities: Theories & Methods in the Soweto Historical GIS (SHGIS) Project.”

The symposium will also feature a hands-on Game Jam session sponsored by The Learning Games Network.
