Join three Rutgers-Newark faculty on November 4th in the John Cotton Dana Library for an engaging discussion two of the fastest growing interdisciplinary fields: digital humanities and data science. What are these disciplines and how can they help you in your work? This event will break these complex terms down and demonstrate their value through discussions of current projects. Learn about new research tools, teaching strategies, and ways to engage the public. Speakers will include:
- Krista White, Digital Humanities Librarian, “The myth of the digital native: Why digital literacy is a perfect fit for the classroom”
- Mary Rizzo, Associate Director of Public & Digital Humanities Initiatives, History and American Studies, “Digital Tools for Public Engagement: Mapping 101 and Omeka”
- Patrick Shafto, Henry Rutgers Term Chair in Data Science and Associate Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science, “This is data science: Understanding and automating aspects of human intuition”
Refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
