4月30日，哥大全球中心 | 北京和北京今日美术馆邀请哥伦比亚大学图书馆数字学术馆员Alex Gil博士就人文学科的数字化实验方法、资料整理检索和呈现方法等展开更深入的分享。
On April 30, Columbia Global Centers | Beijing and Today Art Museum invites you to a public talk by Alex Gil, the Digital Scholarship Librarian at Columbia University Libraries. The talk will focus on the experimental digital methods in the humanities, from epistemic design to literary visualizations.
With the rise of online networks, computational methods, consumer hardware, and more recently, machine learning, the work of building and interpreting a cultural record is under uncertain transformations. The XPMethod group has for the past 7 years tried to creatively intervene in the intersection of academic humanities, the human cultural record and these societal changes by consistent experimentation and rapid prototyping.
In this lecture, Gil will cover some of the important concepts and praxis that have come out of the group—epistemic design, minimal computing, nimble tents, and more—by showcasing selected projects. We will also have an opportunity to discuss how these research activities intersect with the classroom.
