In March 2013, CDH will begin running an informal series of lunch-hour talks, called the Digital Brown Bag. DBB will be a forum for faculty, staff and students interested in Digital Humanities broadly speaking – including theory, current practices, methods, problems, data curation, new media, substantive disciplinary research, etc. At a given DBB, one person will present his or her work in progress, while other people eat lunch, absorbed in lofty thought! Each talk will be 20-30 minutes, followed by discussion and Q&A. The goal is for the DBB format to hit a sweet spot, more prepared than just an extemporaneous discussion of an interest area, but more casual and informal than presenting a paper. Please contact Colin Wilder (wildercf at mailbox dot sc dot edu) for more information or to sign up to give a presentation. We expect the DBB to run through the spring semester, take a hiatus for the summer, and resume on an ongoing basis in the fall.
Past presentations can be viewed at our video archives.
