Location: The Humanities Initiative: 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor, New York, 10003

Matthew K. Gold, Assistant Professor of English at New York City College of Technology, discusses his newly edited work, Debates in the Digital Humanities (U of Minnesota Press, 2012).  This event is presented by the Digital Humanities Working Group, and co-sponsored by The Humanities Initiative and NYU Libraries.

Gold is a faculty member in the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Doctoral Certificate Program at the CUNY Graduate Center, where he also serves as Advisor to the Provost for Master’s Programs and Digital Initiatives.  He is Project Director of Looking for Whitman: The Poetry of Place in the Life and Work of Walt Whitman, an NEH-finded experiment in online multi-campus pedagogy, and Project Director of the CUNY Academic Commons, an open-source academic social network dedicated to building community across CUNY's 23 campuses.

Debates in the Digital Humanities brings together leading figures in the field to explore its theories, methods, and practices and to clarify its multiple possibilities and tensions. Together, the essays—which will be published later as an ongoing, open-access website—suggest that the digital humanities is uniquely positioned to contribute to the revival of the humanities and academic life.

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
