The new English department website looks terrific, but it would look even better with complete graduate student profiles that include professional photos and information on individual research, teaching, and other projects. This workshop is designed to show you how to make your profile look great.

Please join us for an open discussion with Patrik Svensson about the digital humanities, life in the academy, and humanities and information technology. HUMlab, formerly directed by Patrik, is a space of interdisciplinary research related to modern information and media technologies.

The Transcriptions 2014 Newsletter is out!

It contains information on the events and projects Transcriptions is doing beginning Fall 2014. If you missed our kick-off event last week, you won’t want to miss reading our newsletter. We hope to see you in the center soon.

The aim of this presentation is to highlight the importance of Brazilian Concrete poets of the 1950s for the practice of E-literature and visual arts at the present time. In what ways did the works of Erthos Souza, the Campos brothers, and D├ęcio Pignatari, among others anticipate the aesthetic sensibility of current digital writers and artists? How has this tradition or legacy been transformed by the major figures in Brazilian digital culture in the 21st century?

Interested in media? Digital humanities? Meeting new friends? Enjoy cheese and other snacks?

Come join us for food and conversation and learn about what the Transcriptions Center is doing this coming year — and the many ways that you can participate in upcoming events and projects!
