The third installment of the Weekly Digital Humanities Meet-Up takes place from 2-3 p.m. this Wednesday, Oct. 26, at the World Languages and Digital Humanities Studio, J.B. Hunt room 207.

The Weekly DH Meet-Up alternates between Wednesdays from 2-3 p.m. and Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. at the World Languages and Digital Humanities Studio. The meet-up will explore the intersection of digital technology and humanist thought in both theoretical and practical applications. The DH Meet-Up strives to establish an interdisciplinary and diverse constellation of educators and researchers, students and faculty, across the U of A campus, as we probe and interrogate what the digital humanities mean today. 

On Oct. 26, meet-up participants will explore surveillance and artificial intelligence and discuss the following text: "America Under Watch: Face Surveillance in the United States," which can be found at www.americaunderwatch.com. The meet-up will by led by Chy'Na Nellon, a Ph.D. candidate in comparative literature and cultural studies, and Carter Buckner, a Ph.D. candidate in computer science.

Refreshments will be provided at the meet-up.

Register for the meet-up.
