Conference: Convergences among Digital and Environmental Humanities

On November 3-4, the IHR will have the privilege of hosting the 2016 Western Humanities Alliance Conference, “Convergences among Digital and Environmental Humanities.” Throughout the day, panelists and participants will explore the potential of environmental and digital humanities collaborations that could re-imagine how we analyze food, water, energy, and information as they intersect with long-term planetary well-being. The group will discuss both data and interpretation as tools for bringing about sustainable approaches and outcomes. Panels will feature conversations around the themes of Food, Water, Landscape; Data and Well-Being; and Transdisciplinary Resilience. The keynote will be delivered by Heather Houser, Associate Professor of English, University of Texas, Austin.
