ASECS 2015 DH Caucus: "Current Conversations in Eighteenth-Century Digital Humanities"

full name / name of organization: 
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

The aim of this panel is to assess the state of digital humanities work within eighteenth-century studies. We ask what are the conversations, both current and emerging, surrounding digital approaches to research and pedagogy? If, as Alan Liu has suggested, the goal of digital humanities work is to move from "signal" to "meaning," how are scholars of the eighteenth century approaching this issue in their methods, theory, and teaching? This panel is especially interested in interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary perspectives and innovative presentation formats.
