Dr. Craig Saper: “Digital Public Humanities: Tentative Definitions” (Reading Modalities from Algorithms to AI)

Thursday, February 9, 2023 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

With many volumes, college courses, and conferences examining debates in the digital humanities, we might think about competing definitions of digital scholarship. Prof. Craig Saper, in his return to UCF, will offer a series of tentative definitions of DH as well as think through models of reading and literacy in an age of big data sets, algorithmic mining, and AI-chat-bots. Since UCF has generated so much important research in the study of texts and technology, Saper will also highlight a few of those earlier UCF faculty projects in an effort to reconcile what look like very different premises about the impact of computation on literacy, intelligence, and culture. Professor Saper is the Director of the Language, Literacy, and Culture Doctoral Program at UMBC in Baltimore where he continues research begun in texts and technology at UCF on reading machines and changes in literacy.
