In an effort to bring together literary theorists, writers, computer programmers and artists to investigate the impact of new technologies on the humanities, City University of Hong Kong has planned the first Digital Humanities Roundtable in Hong Kong.

From May 15-17, 2014, we will host several prominent, international speakers from top universities to discuss topics such as digital literatures, digital pedagogies, and visualization in the humanities. We aim for this roundtable to encourage new partnerships and to reveal commonalities between those working with computation and those investigating literature, poetry and critical-cultural theory.

We invite university faculty, graduate students, and members of the public interested in these issues to sign up and attend. Registration is here:
