The Susan Hockey Lecture in Digital Humanities

The Susan Hockey Lecture in Digital Humanities is named after Susan Hockey, Emeritus Professor of Library and Information Studies at UCL, and a leading figure in the establishment of Humanities Computing as an academic discipline.

As chair of the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing from 1984 to 1997, she founded the journal Literary and Linguistic Computing, now the Journal of Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, and is widely published in this field.

The aim of this annual public lecture series is to celebrate and promote work in Digital Humanities: the application of computational techniques within the arts, humanities, culture and heritage.
