Digital Humanities: An Introduction

6:00pm - 7:00pm EDT March 22

Location: Swanson Academic Center (SAC), SAC 110

The term “Digital Humanities” is a popular buzzword, but many people aren’t clear on what it means and why it matters. Students and faculty interested in learning more about this topic should join the English Department in welcoming Dr. Amardeep Singh to campus. Dr. Singh’s talk will examine the basics of digital humanities and offer practical pointers for those who want to engage with the field.

The talk will be held Thursday, March 22nd at 6 PM in SAC 110.


Dr. Singh is an associate professor at Lehigh University. His work and publications cover issues of postcolonialism, poststructuralism, religion and literature. He is also a leading scholar in the practice of digital humanities. He is involved in numerous digital projects, such as his excellent digital archive “The Kiplings and India,” and he is an invited speaker at this year’s Global Digital Humanities Symposium at Michigan State University.
