Digital Humanities at the University of Calgary
Are you interested in doing graduate work in the digital humanities at the University of Calgary? Or just want to learn more about what we’re doing in this field?
Drop me a line. I’m accepting graduate students (MA and PhD) for Fall 2017.
Faculty here at the University of Calgary are topic-modelling sci-fi archives and using computers to analyze Shakespeare’s language patterns. In the Department of English we digitize, deform, and interpret texts, to develop new methods of digital philology; and we work with computer scientists to quantify, process, and visualize texts to uncover social, cultural, political, and historical trends.
If shaping the future of the humanities appeals to you, consider applying to the Department of English to do your graduate work in this field. The application deadline is December 10, 2016 for admission in Fall 2016.
- Here’s some info about who I am, and the kind of research I do — including the Augmented Criticism Lab.
- Here’s a recent talk I gave on the state of Digital Humanities at the University of Calgary, featuring the research and teaching of many colleagues in the Faculty of Arts (scroll to the 4th slide), and our collaborations with the library and the Department of Computer Science.
