|Emory Digital Humanities Symposium: DH for the Study and Teaching of South Asia|
|April 6-7, 2018 || Emory University|
The Woodruff Library will host the Emory Digital Humanities Symposium: DH for the Study and Teaching of South Asia on April 6th and 7th. This is an interdisciplinary and international symposium on newly formed approaches to digital humanities in the field of South Asian Studies, and it brings together scholars and library professionals actively engaged in DH projects related to South Asia.
The two-day symposium of panels, demos, and a roundtable discussion will replicate the cycle of scholarly production – one in which individuals access archives or create their own, analyze data, teach about their research, craft scholarship, and publish in some format for public consumption. Please see the attached flyer for detailed information about the featured projects and presentations.
|Role of Theory in Causal Identification|
|This conference is held in conjunction with our annual theme series - Research Design is Not Enough. We will invite speakers from Emory and beyond to discuss recent statistical research on the problem of causal inference, which has provided a powerful foundation for both experimental research as well as strong observational designs meant to uncover causation.
