English Graduate Student Association of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro

For its fifth annual interdisciplinary conference in English studies, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro's English Graduate Student Association asks, "What academic work are you engaged in?" This conference is designed to build a sense of community among graduate scholars by providing a forum to present ongoing research in a non-threatening and receptive academic environment. Additionally, this conference is designed to bring graduate scholars into contact with established professionals who can answer questions about best practices.

The conference will be held this year on Saturday, Sept 25.

Digital Humanism and English Studies

Humanism is traditionally defined as a moral philosophy that attaches primary importance to humans, to their dignity, concerns, and capabilities. What happens when we include the digital in this definition? Is "digital humanism" an oxymoron? Or is there room for reconceiving the relationship between digital computing and knowledge production—especially in, but not limited to, the discipline of English studies—in a way that harnesses human potential in the pursuit of humanistic ends? The print revolution played an essential role in the rise of Renaissance humanism. Can the spread of digital computers stimulate a digital humanism?
