What do we now understand about the potential and issues for the application of computing in the Arts and Humanities? In her inaugural lecture Melissa Terras looks back at the decade she has spent at UCL applying computing to different areas of humanistic research, ranging from Jeremy Bentham’s manuscripts, to Roman documents from Hadrian’s Wall, to 3D scanning of museum collections, to an app for text analysis.

A drinks reception will follow in the Wilkins North Cloisters at 7.30pm.
