On Thursday, March 23, Erin Warford, PhD, adjunct professor of classics, kicked off the College of Arts & Sciences Digital Humanities Speaker Series. Warford discussed her use of digital geographic information systems (GIS) to investigate the sacred practices of ancient Athenians. The presentation was followed by an enthusiastic discussion as participants from across the campus community considered ancient Greek spiritual and political practices together with the enormous scholarly possibilities of GIS in the arts and humanities.
Stay tuned for a video recording of Warford’s presentation as well as details about the Digital Humanities Speaker Series’ second presentation, on April 27.
