Humanities Careers, Technological Methods
Transcriptions, South Hall 2509
Technology is changing the landscape of the humanities. Four speakers discuss the varied ways that these changes can impact a humanities career – its skills, fields, projects, conferences, and job listings.
Each speaker will present a short statement, followed by a roundtable discussion and opportunity for audience participation. There will be light refreshments.
