An informal series of lunch-time talks about current research or teaching in Digital Humanities by faculty and graduate students from the USC community. CDH will provide coffee, you bring your lunch. Presenters will be scheduled ahead of time; the schedule will appear on http://cdh.sc.edu/dbb as soon as it is available. Talks will be 15-30 minutes (max) with time afterward for leisurely discussion and Q&A. We’re aiming for a level of formality greater than simply an extemporaneous speech, but far less than a conference paper. Low pressure is the key! The DBB will convene a few times in March and April 2013, then restart on a regular basis in Autumn 2013. Please contact Colin Wilder (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Robert Blank (email@example.com) if you would be interested in presenting or to find out more.
