An interdisciplinary research initiative on the intersection of computational analytics, digital technologies, and humanistic thinking.
Computational Humanities Lab is a new interdisciplinary initiative led by Dr. Zhaojin Zeng at Duke Kunshan University. It aims to promote the interaction between computational methods and humanistic inquiry. As a beginner-friendly environment for exchanging ideas and expanding networks, the Lab also provides collaboration opportunities for faculty and students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds.
In 2022, the Lab will facilitate a series of workshops and seminars under the support of Duke Kunshan Humanities Research Center. The series will feature lectures, workshops, and roundtable discussions with leading experts and practitioners in computational humanities and social sciences from all over the world. The serial events will cover various aspects of computational analysis, humanistic interpretation, data visualization, as well as other data-related topics in media, design, and philosophy. The series welcomes faculty and students from all disciplines and majors. It aims to provide an opportunity to learn about fundamental computational techniques and their applications in humanistic fields.
