TDA affiliate Srini Parthasarathy is hosting guest speaker Mitsunori Ogihara, who will present “Exploring Digital Humanities.”

About the talk: “Digital humanities” refers to an area of humanities that is focused on the use of digital technologies to explore humanistic questions. The types of digital technologies that are used in digital humanities widely vary as well as the questions asked. Digital humanities are receiving growing attention from the scholars as well as from the humanities graduate students. At the University of Miami, I have been engaged in collaborative digital humanities projects with librarians and humanists. In this talk, I will present some of the work I have conducted and present some thoughts about the future of this area.

He is currently a Professor of Computer Science, a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and a Professor of Music Media and Industry at the University of Miami.
