Critical Approaches to Digital Humanities: An MATX Symposium

Since the early 2000s, the Digital Humanities (DH) have been celebrated as a rebirth of, or even a times a replacement for, other forms of humanistic inquiry. While many DH events focus on the digital projects and tools DH scholars produce, this symposium offered an opportunity for scholars and students to focus specifically on DH's impact, both positive and negative, on the humanities.

Keynote address: Tara McPherson Critical Studies & School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California

Panelists: Fiona Barnett, Literature, Duke University/HASTAC; Simone Browne, African and African Diaspora Studies, University of Texas-Austin; Natalia Cecire, English, Yale; David Golumbia, English and MATX Program, VCU; Brian Lennon, English & Comparative Literature, Penn State University; Amanda Phillips, English, University of California-Santa Barbara.
