Digital Thinking/Critical Thinking: Building the Humanities at Hofstra

This two-day conference focuses on how to create a Digital Research Center at Hofstra that will enable faculty and students to develop digital solutions to critical and cultural problems. Keynote speakers include: Valerie Barr, Professor of Computer Science and Director of Interdisciplinary Programs, Union College; Wyn Kelley, Senior Lecturer in Literature, MIT; and Kurt Fendt, Principal Research Associate in Comparative Media Studies and Executive Director of HyperStudio - Digital Humanities at MIT.
