Learn how computer science relates to the humanities and get hands-on training in programs related to digital identity, digital learning and digital pedagogy.

On March 26 at noon, Ted Underwood, associate professor of English at the University of Illinois-Champaign/Urbana will give a talk, "The Shared Questions about Interpretation that Link Computer Science to the Humanities," in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library.
