Session Information

Description: This session responds to two recent calls to diversify DH in terms of cultural and area studies: on the one hand, Alan Liu’s MLA 2018 presentation “Digital Humanities Diversity as Technical Problem,” and, on the other, Thea Pitman and Claire Taylor’s DHQ article “Where’s the ML in DH? And Where’s the DH in ML? The Relationship between Modern Languages and Digital Humanities, and an Argument for a Critical DHML.” Panelists discuss the intersections of ML and DH and their reciprocal influences.
