Learning lunch on the Digital Liberal Arts – Tuesday March 11, 12:15

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Over the past decade, digital technologies have suffused every corner of liberal arts education, from in-class instruction to student life to faculty research to campus infrastructure. One important impact of this digital shift has been that technologies that had previously been more common within sciences and narrow specialized disciplines, now have been adopted both across the teaching curriculum and within scholarly research in all disciplines, especially the humanities. We see this technological turn as part of a movement that some have called the Digital Liberal Arts.

Rebekah Irwin, LIS’s Director of Special Collections and Archives, will help us better understand the Digital Liberal Arts at Middlebury. Please bring your lunch and join us!

Tuesday, March 11

12:15 pm at the Mitchell Green Lounge in McCullough

Staff Art and Craft Exhibit – March 15th; 1-4 p.m.
