We are proud to announce that Loyola University Chicago will be hosting the 2018 Chicago Colloquium for Digital Humanities and Computer Science!
Loyola is Chicago’s Jesuit, Catholic university. With over 16,600 students and eleven schools, Loyola is one of the nation’s largest Catholic universities. It has campuses at the start of the Magnificent Mile as well as on Lake Michigan on the north side of the city.
Digital humanities research and education have a home at Loyola at the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities (CTSDH), a collaborative multidisciplinary research center in the College of Arts and Sciences. The CTSDH supports research across the humanities, as well as in the arts, communication, computer science, social sciences, and University Libraries. In addition to supporting research projects, the CTSDH sponsors conferences, lectures, and workshops, and offers undergraduate and graduate students the chance to work with faculty on advanced research, and to take courses in and pursue research of their own in the interdisciplinary areas of textual studies and digital humanities.
The CTSDH administers Loyola’s professional M.A. degree in Digital Humanities, one of the few such programs in the country. The Digital Humanities MA program offers training in the practice and critical study of the intersections between the humanities and computational sciences. Our interdisciplinary program offers rigorous hands-on training in digital research projects within a theoretical framework that explores the critical, social, and ethical contexts for thinking about Digital Humanities research and applications.
Loyola last hosted the Colloquium in 2011.
