The next Decoding Digital Humanities meetup will be held on Monday 12 April. We had an excellent crowd of about 20 people come along to the first event (DDH # 1) on 16 March with loads of thought provoking discussion. But of course, there are many issues yet to consider and explore and what could be more fun than doing so with others over a pint or two? As before, we would like to continue with assigning some reading(s) to provide a focus for our discussions.
Richard Lewis, did an excellent write up which can be found on his blog here , and he suggested this reading:
Mateas, Michael (2005). “Procedural Literacy: Educating the New Media
Practitioner”. On the Horizon 13:2 (2005): 101-111.
We would really like you to suggest ideas on what you would like to discuss or articles you reccomend for future meet ups. Email you suggestion to Kathryn or Claire or leave a comment on the blog. The assigned reading will be posted on here andon the DDH webpage . Again the purpose of these events is to discuss the nature, purpose and potential of DH in order to learn about and make the most of current developments.
Date: Monday, 12 April 2010
Time: 5.30pm – 7.30pm
Location: Jeremy Bentham pub, 31 University Street, London, WC1E 6JL (map )
