Undergrads Reimagine the Humanities
Last month, I was honored to be a keynote speaker at Re:Humanities, an undergraduate conference on digital media in academia organized by students at Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges. It was an extraordinary two days of presentations and conversations, thinking with a cluster of energetic young scholars from about 10 different schools about how digital texts and digital practices might transform the undergraduate educational and research experience.
The organizers are now at work on a manifesto for undergraduate digital humanities, which they hope to circulate in January. In the meantime, they’ve put together a video about the conference, its driving questions, and its outcomes. It’s worth a watch.
