Session Abstract

The Technology and Communication Committee of the History of Science Society are sponsoring and organizing a dual-submission round-table in order to discuss issues in digital humanities in the history of science and the history of technology. As these disciplines continue to develop, we must recognize that we are working within the context of new technologies, new methods of engaging scholars and the public, and new philosophies of using these technologies. Presenters in this roundtable session will have an open, organized, discussion about their own experiences with digital humanities. We aim not only to share our methods and ideas, but also to learn more about how our use of digital methods is working--or not working--within disciplines that are a bit late to the digital platform. Further, we as a committee expect to learn more about how the TCC can work within HSS and its members, as well as collaborate with SHOT members, to make projects easier to create, to promote projects, and to help develop plans for supporting DH in the years to come.
