Academic Roundtable: Data Science and the Digital Liberal Arts

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 , 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

Panelists: Sarah Laursen (Art History), Matt Lawrence (Sociology), Alex Lyford (Math), Jason Mittell, (FMMC), Caitlin Myers (Economics), Amy Morsman (History), Phil Murphy (MIIS)

What is data science? What is the Digital Liberal Arts? How do they connect to each other? How are they different? How do they connect to the education envisioned by our new strategic plan? As Middlebury plots its future curricular course, we’ve identified a set of digitally-oriented initiatives that we believe will play an increasingly significant role in the future of liberal education both here and within higher education more broadly. As a way into this complicated topic, we want to hold an open conversation amongst our faculty who are already deeply engaged in these practices, as well as those who want to learn more about these developing areas. Our panelists will share their thoughts on these questions as a way to begin what we hope will be a campus-wide, year-long conversation.
