Digital Humanities: What the fuss is all about -- How approaches invented at Wheaton shed light on literature from Beowulf to Shakespeare to the Harlem Renaissance
Michael Drout, Professor of English
Mark D. LeBlanc, Professor of Computer Science, Meneely Chair
Wheaton students have made major discoveries about Beowulf, Shakespeare and Langston Hughes... and you can, too! Join us for a hands-on workshop on Lexomics. Find out how Wheaton faculty and students connect across disciplines to create new knowledge that could not have been made in either discipline alone. Professors Drout (English) and LeBlanc (Computer Science) will demonstrate Lexomics, the partnership between English and Computer Science that has led to Wheaton students making discoveries about 1000-year-old texts, presenting their results at international conferences, and surprising the academic literary establishment. This will be a hands-on workshop. Location to be announced.
