Student Opportunities in Computational Humanities and Social Sciences

The Humanities Research Center recently launched its Computational Humanities and Social Science: A Seminar and Workshop Series, led by Profs. Zhaojin Zeng, Jaehee Choi and Alice Xiang. The workshop series will be bringing a number of leading experts to discuss the use of computational methods in the service of humanistic and social science inquiry.

At the same time, Professors Charles Chang and James Miller are pleased to announce the launch of a Data Science Research Center project, Knowledge Graph of Classical Chinese Philosophy, led by DKU senior Junyi Tao.

Both projects provide opportunities for computer science students, social science students and arts and humanities students to work together on understanding how computational methods can be used for academic research in the humanities and social sciences. If you are interested in learning more, please attend the Zoom meeting on Friday September 16 at 8pm China time / 8am Eastern time / 2pm Barcelona time. You will be able to learn more about both these projects and will be able to apply for positions as research assistants or other student workers.

Please note that both projects are seeking students in all disciplines including computer science, social science, and humanities. It is not necessary to be a computer science / data science major to participate in these projects.

Date/Time: Friday, Sept 16, 8pm China time / 8am Eastern time / 2pm Barcelona
