             Keystone DH is currently inviting submissions on all aspects of using
        and studying digital computation within the interpretive context of
        the humanities–especially those considering the role of communities of

        of scholarly inquiry.

    • Regina Schober talkFeb. 16, 2017, UCSB -- Regina Schober (U. Mannheim): "Networks and Numbers: New Models for the Humanities?" (1pm, Sankey Room, South Hall 2623) 
      • "In her talk, Regina Schober will look at the concept of ‘network’ and ‘quantification’ as transdisciplinary phenomena that have increasingly been explored in the humanities. As a preferred metaphor and figure of thought in our current information age, the network serves to describe complex, recursive, and multilateral structures. At the same time, Big Data has brought forth a paradigm shift from qualitative to quantitative (self-)description. What does it mean if (US American) literature and culture not only address digital practices but also incorporate them into their narrative structure? How do these concepts challenge traditional assumptions concerning knowledge, subjectivity, and agency? And finally, what does it mean to adopt ‘network’ and ‘numbers’ as models for the humanities?"
